The COVID-19 pandemic can be viewed as the third significant shock to have raised a ruckus around town States and the worldwide economy in the initial twenty years of this long time. In the first place, we encountered the September 11, 2001, fear assaults, then, at that point, the 2008-2009 Financial Crisis, and presently the COVID-19 pandemic. Every one of these emergencies defied the worldwide economy, and the monetary framework specifically, with various difficulties, with the COVID-19 emergency prone to be absolutely awful. As per the World Bank (2020), the worldwide economy is supposed to contract by 5.2% this year, addressing the most profound worldwide downturn since the Second World War [1].

Partnerships' incomes have been seriously hit. While the impact is impermanent for certain organizations, many firms will encounter it in the more extended term, prompting monetary misery. For instance, a few firms have plans of action that are contradictory with social separating; firms in the modern and energy areas will experience the ill effects of falling interest for their items; and, monetary firms might participate in more going after yield in a situation of zero momentary rates.

The beginning of the pandemic emergency both for securities evaluated an or higher as well with respect to securities appraised BBB or lower. The astounding perspective is that even organizations that were one step above non-venture grade gave bonds. Taking into account that capital guidelines force weighty costs on monetary establishments conveying these bonds on the off chance that a minimization occurs, this outcome is much unforeseen. One more astounding outcome: firms decided to give bonds with longer developments during the emergency, rather than existing proof that recommends the inverse occurred during past emergencies. Value issues had the contrary way of behaving: a noticeable dialing back [2].

Expansive financial recuperation and business development will urgently rely upon firms' capacity to fully recover. To do as such, we ought to initially comprehend how much value has been singed during the emergency and, accordingly, how huge is the monetary misery (and the size of liquidations) we will confront. The papers examined above show that in the momentary firms had the option to raise significant measures of obligation. Be that as it may, higher obligation and default hazard will lead immediately to the notable issue of obligation overhang, bringing about lower future ventures when development will be vital. Hence, examining value disintegration and its cross-sectional heterogeneity across firms and industries is significant.

Temporarily, legislatures and national banks in many areas of the planet have established crisis measures to infuse liquidity into the corporate area. In the more extended term, a potential risk that emerges is that organizations that ought to have been closed down, all things considered, are kept alive as "zombie firms" through the arrangement of sponsored supporting. That's what existing writing shows permitting zombie firms to endure creates expenses for the economy: such organizations haul down efficiency development and make business redistribution to additional useful firms hazardous. One more peculiarity we have seen as the emergency unfurled has been enormous stock cost developments in the United States, with starting critical falls and afterward a recuperation after the declaration of the fast mediation of the Federal Reserve Board and the different projects sanctioned by the national government. One inquiry of interest is whether firm-level qualities assumed a significant part in these profound stock cost developments. The two financial backers and experts appear to have moved their concentration to significant firm attributes: high corporate influence and the endurance chances of firms with scant money. This outcome connects well with the "run for cash" and the connected papers referenced previously [3].

One firm-level trademark that has drawn in a great deal of consideration as of late is the degree of corporate social obligation claimed by the firm. The pandemic, with its weighty cost for living souls, joblessness, and monetary misery, ought to be a significant analysis for firms' purported interests in their obligation towards society, as caught by the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) scores. Whether these scores catch genuine responsibility or window dressing is as yet a major open inquiry in the writing.

The COVID-19 shock has been recognized by both the size of the financial destruction it has prompted and the speed with which situation has transpired in the beginning phases of the emergency. In this issue, we have assembled the absolute best early examination in corporate money connected with the COVID-19 emergency. The papers look at which firms in the United States raised outer capital when the emergency hit and how they did as such, what might we at any point expect as far as value setbacks and possible liquidations in Italy, the trouble of figuring out which firms might be zombie firms, and a few driving variables of cross-sectional heterogeneity in securities exchange returns [4].

As economies all over the planet start to recuperate from the COVID-19 emergency, generally speaking partnerships will be essentially turned and will keep on being under monetary pressure. It will be significant both to comprehend the degree to which obligation overhang is an obstruction to speculation and to devise strategies, for example, value infusions into firms that might moderate this grinding. Other open inquiries incorporate the degree to which ES scores will be driving stock returns once we return to typical times. Generally, we trust that the subjects addressed by the papers in this issue, and the numerous contemplations they raise, will give a springboard to future examination into the impacts of COVID-19, and the illustrations we can remove, for the following quite a long while [5].
