Leading Commercial Lender CMLS Financial Releases In-Depth Q2 Commercial Mortgage Spread Commentary

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 16, 2013) - CMLS Financial, one of Canada's largest independent mortgage lenders, today released their Q2 Commercial Mortgage Spread Commentary, an in-depth analysis of commercial mortgage spreads in Canada.

Their August 2013 Commentary looks at a number of key topics for the commercial mortgage industry, including the 60 bps spike to Canadian commercial real estate borrowing costs that resulted from Ben Bernanke's statements on quantitative easing. It anticipates $900 million of new CMBS issuance in 2013 and discusses the potential for a rate increase in the high yield mortgage market. The CMLS Financial Commentary reviews the effects of the new legislation on Canadian covered bonds, the planned changes announced by the Feds in March 2013 to limit bulk insurance on low ratio mortgage pools outside of CMHC securitization programs, and reports on current activity in the REIT market.
