Moody's Commercial Real Estate – Moody's

Commercial real estate, or CRE, has traditionally generated stable revenue, but current shifts in consumer and business behaviors, housing affordability and supply, rising interest rates, stalling transaction volume as valuations correct, limited debt liquidity, upcoming loan maturities and secular changes in office utilization are beginning to affect CRE performance and cause new pockets of risk to develop.
Over a three-to-five year horizon, returns will depend on how lenders and investors manage their CRE portfolios, carefully monitoring both secular and cyclical trends and how they manifest as risk. Because CRE is such a heterogenous asset class going through complicated changes, it is important to have a robust, organized, and consistent way to keep tabs on all the credit-driving intricacies of a large portfolio.
Volatility in the real estate market is driving an increased need for a formalized approach to reporting on CRE portfolio performance and collateral. The CRE 360 Portfolio Monitor couples your proprietary portfolio data together with our best-in-class data, models, market, and forecasting capabilities so you can evaluate portfolio performance, identify riskier assets and make decisions with confidence.
