NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) released a Compendium analyzing the second quarter results of the U.S. public banking institutions with KBRA long-term ratings. This issue of KBRA’s Bank Compendium also includes a Spotlight on Investor Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Concentration. Given the persistent growth in investor CRE lending, combined with some lending segments approaching maturation in the credit cycle, KBRA highlights key CRE concentration metrics and opines on observations within its rated universe. Based on second quarter 2017 earnings reports, performance trends for the public institutions in KBRA’s rated universe of domestic banking institutions remain stable as compared to the trends from the first quarter of 2017. Ratings remained largely unchanged, as did the overall rating distribution since the First Quarter 2017 Compendium Report was published on May 8, 2017. The following ratings actions and changes were made since the last report:
- Seven institutions were assigned new ratings,
- The ratings for three institutions were upgraded,
- The ratings for three institutions were withdrawn,
- The Outlooks for three institutions were changed.
