Commercial mortgage investments held by life insurance companies posted a modest total return of 0.63% in the third quarter of 2021. This modest return is attributed to a decline in reported loan values ​​of -0.37% .

“Economic growth expectations have been hampered as short-term inflation has become a long-term concern,” said Jennifer dimaano, Trepp Data Analyst. “The Fed remained accommodating on inflation and maintained a wait-and-see attitude in the third quarter.”

Yields on treasury bills are steadily declining. In the third quarter, yields fell 22 basis points after hitting a high of 174 basis points in the first quarter. Interest rates remain low and demand for goods continues to rise despite supply chain bottlenecks.

Labor demand for historic minimum wage jobs has increased to attract potential candidates. Properties that would normally have hospitality employees had the highest returns in the LifeComps portfolio in the third quarter.
