The Crittenden Report: Life Companies prepare for 2021
We find the following information from the latest issue of The Crittenden Report to be an accurate assessment of how Life Companies will be lending starting in 2021. Continue reading below to find out the details:

The life company lending market will be strong as these lenders look to put capital out and grab favorable yield in 2021. Many banks, CMBS, and debt funds have experienced disruptions in their pipelines, and life companies will step in to cherry pick the best deals next year.

Life companies will prefer deals with 50% to 60% leverage, although multifamily and industrial will see leverage up to 65% to 75%.

High-quality loans with strong sponsors will see rates in the mid- to high 2% range, while most loans will be priced in the low to mid-3% range.
