Loan Loss

Commercial real estate (CRE) loan loss and investment loss reduction now requires us to consider market estimates and forecasts more than ever to prevent loan loss severity risk from getting out of control in a hot CRE investment climate.  loan lossThe loan loss market issues seemingly drive all other factors.  In a market economy, as long as there is a future revenue opportunity for a given local trade area of a CRE property business, there is a high probability that all other default event conditions can be made, more or less, controllable, so the revenue opportunity truly is at the root of the loan loss conundrum.  The adoption of the CECL methodology for combating loan loss is creating a strong pressure on banks to build there loss reserves to offset an expected $246 billion loss risk expectation that FASB compliance may end up requiring by 2020.

The CECL methodology directly addresses the issues that concern the FDIC, OCC and other regulatory agencies most about CRE financings – the risk of a local market failure by a property that is due to the extended holding period the securities usually require.  This fundamental issue requires a proactive approach that current PD modeling does not easily incorporate.  Indeed, a definitive argument shows these analytical approaches to computing loss exposure may amount to the cold comfort of having swept out the bad apples in the barrel when we swept out the good apples along with them.  The impact on earnings, share value, reserves and dividends is almost incalculable.commercial real estate loan loss
