Catella: Good to great on access to property financing, says survey

(lifePR) (Berlin, ) In Catella's Real Estate Debt Indicator (CREDI) for the second quarter of 2013 the sentiment among lenders and borrowers on the Swedish credit market reached all-time high with an improvement from 55.9 in the first quarter to 64.9 in the second. The increase in the Main index reflects a strengthening of both underlying Current Situation and Expectations indices.

"A majority of both lenders and borrowers polled indicate an easier lending environment in the current and near term. This is reflected in the mix of real estate transactions in the first half of the year that saw geared investors taking a bigger share of total acquisitions," says Daniel Anderbring, Research Analyst at Catella.

The alternative financing trend remains strong and the outstanding volume of corporate bonds and secured bonds issued by the listed companies covered by CREDI now amounts to more than 10 per cent of their total outstanding debt.

"We believe the trend of alternative sourcing of financing to continue and bond issues with security in underlying properties to capture a larger share of the total real estate related bond market," says Niclas Forsman, Capital Markets Analyst at Catella.

Among the listed companies covered by CREDI, average loan to value ratios have dropped to 53 per cent in Q1 2013 - supporting the trend of deleveraging established in 2009.
