NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its KBRA Credit Profile (KCP)

About the Index
The March 2019 Index is a composite of 1,280 K-LOCs with an aggregate
UPB of $23.76 billion across 281 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 conduit delinquency rate by a factor of 8.77.
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.
