NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its KBRA Credit Profile (KCP) K-LOC Index for the month of June.
The K-LOC Index decreased this month by 12 bps to 8.20%, with the balance of identified post-crisis (2.0) K-LOCs decreasing by $249.7 million. Six of the eight post-crisis vintages experienced a decline in K-LOC balance, comprised of both recent and more seasoned vintages. There were 46 K-LOCs identified this month at an aggregate unpaid principal balance (UPB) of $583.0 million. Each of the newly identified K-LOCs has a UPB less than $45.0 million.
About the Index
The June 2018 Index is a composite of 1,169 K-LOCs with an aggregate UPB of $23.95 billion spread across 257 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 11.9. 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.
