The Trepp LifeComps portfolio has felt the effects of major market events that have occurred since the start of the year. The lingering impact of the pandemic, such as supply chain disruptions and inflation, was only exacerbated by global headlines.
Asset classes in the LifeComps portfolio have been hit with a negative total return in 01 2022. Multifamily properties took the hardest hit, with a -5.33% total return realized in 01. Retail and hotel property loans had a lower realized loss of -3.08% and -3.32%, respectively.
“Office property uncertainty is at the forefront of investors’ minds. Office occupancy reported in LifeComps was only 89%, the second lowest to hotels at 46%,” said Jennifer Dimaano, Trepp Associate. “Nearly two-thirds of the loans that have been sold in the LifeComps portfolio are comprised of office property loans. Investor sentiment regarding office space remains uncertain as downsizing becomes a growing trend amongst office occupiers.”
The LifeComps portfolio depreciated 5.77% in a 12-month change. Despite the depreciation of assets, interest payments are still surpassing the interest that is due. In the upcoming months, interest income will drive total returns.
