Los Angeles – February 28, 2019 – Life companies intend to be very active in 2019 and there is still postive relative value in CML’s as compared to alternative investments. Significant spread compression has occurred in “BB” corporate bond spreads, which have tightened 41 bps this month (-15.89%) while “A” rated CMBS bond spreads declined 43 bps (-20%). “A” and “BBB” corporate bonds also saw a decrease in spreads, but not as significant for this month representing a decline of 4 and 5 bps, respectively. There is downward pressure on CML spreads due to the perceived lack of supply for good quality lending opportunities and postive relative value as compared to other asset classes.
