NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) announced an agreement with Trepp, LLC,
a leading provider of information analytics and technology to the CMBS
market, to integrate its newly released surveillance service with the
Trepp product suite. The agreement will allow clients of both services
to access KBRA’s Credit Profile (KCP) reports through Trepp.com.
“We are pleased to deliver KBRA’s new CMBS surveillance product through
Trepp, LLC,” said Eric Thompson, Senior Managing Director of Kroll Bond
Rating Agency. “The combination is a win-win for our joint subscribers.
Market participants can now go to one place to access the sector’s
leading tools to evaluate credit risk. KCP Reports offer a fresh
perspective on surveillance, and provide the most robust analysis in the
KBRA’s dedicated analysts produce KCP Reports on a monthly basis, which
contain color and commentary on outstanding CMBS transactions in a
concise, easy to read format. The reports provide multiple valuations
for all of the top 10 loans, as well as KBRA Loans of Concern (K-LOCs),
which include all delinquent, defaulted, and credit impaired loans. The
valuations are used in estimating loan level losses in a manner that
considers both probability of default and resolution timing. KCP
reports, as well as report data that can be downloaded for use in
subscribers’ own internal systems, are available via www.kcp.kbra.com.
The service provides the transparency market constituents have come to
expect from KBRA, with disclosure of the data and assumptions its
analysts use in arriving at their property valuations.
“As Trepp looks to enhance its product suite with more comprehensive
third-party news and analysis, KBRA’s surveillance service is a natural
addition to our platform,” said Tom Fink, Senior Managing Director at
Trepp. “KBRA’s reports offer a comprehensive view of the credit risk of
CMBS transactions and their underlying loan collateral,” Fink said.
The integrated capability will be demonstrated at the June 9thCommercial Real Estate Finance Council conference in New York.
