"The Federal Reserve’s actions over the past year have not only raised interest rates, but have slowed the economy significantly. Naturally, a decaying economy weighs on businesses as sales decline and accounts receivable slow or even default. Perhaps more importantly, business bankruptcies are highly correlated to rising interest rates, and those rates have been on the rise since early 2022. It’s a tough combination, so it’s no surprise that bankruptcies and claims are skyrocketing."
