KBRA Credit Profile (KCP) K-LOC Index: July 2018

August 21, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its KBRA Credit Profile (KCP) K-LOC Index for the month of July.

K-LOC Index

The K-LOC Index decreased this month by 13 bps to 8.07%, with the balance of post-crisis (2.0) K-LOCs decreasing by $417.4 million. Several seasoned 2.0 vintages exhibited stable or improving metrics while the 2017 vintage experienced an uptick in K-LOCs over the past remittance. There were 47 K-LOCs identified this month across our coverage universe of both pre- and post-crisis CMBS at an aggregate unpaid principal balance (UPB) of $749.3 million.

About the Index

The July 2018 Index is a composite of 1,155 K-LOCs with an aggregate UPB of $23.53 billion spread across 259 post-crisis conduit transactions. For any given cohort, the Index is the quotient of its aggregate K-LOC balance and the cohort’s defeasance adjusted UPB. As it includes loans at risk of default, it is a useful, forward-looking credit barometer, and leads the current CMBS delinquency rate by a factor of 11.3. However, it is a more refined gauge of credit risk than the servicer watchlist, as the K-LOC designation is determined by our team of analysts, which perform in-depth monthly analysis on individual transactions and the underlying loan collateral.
