The Trepp LifeComps portfolio has felt the effects of major market events since the start of the year. The lingering impact of the pandemic, such as supply chain disruptions and inflation, has only been exacerbated by global headlines.

Asset classes in the LifeComps portfolio were hit by a negative total return in 01 2022. Multifamily properties were the hardest hit, with a total return of -5.33% achieved in 01. Commercial real estate and hotel loans posted a lower realized loss of -3.08% and -3.32%, respectively.

“Uncertainty in office real estate is at the forefront of investor concerns. Reported office occupancy in LifeComps was just 89%, second lowest after hotels at 46%,” said Jennifer Dimano, partner of Trepp. “Almost two-thirds of the loans that have been sold in LifeComps’ portfolio are made up of office property loans. Investor sentiment regarding office space remains uncertain as downsizing becomes a growing trend among office occupiers .”

The LifeComps portfolio has depreciated by 5.77% in 12 months. Despite asset depreciation, interest payments still exceed interest due. Over the next few months, interest income will boost total returns.

The LifeComps Commercial Mortgage Index remains the only published benchmark for CRE mortgages based on actual performance data and cash flows collected from participating life insurance companies. Access our report to see the latest results for this historical performance index:
