  • Is S&P poised for a comeback in CMBS ratings?
    After more than a year of being excluded from rating major CMBS offerings, Standard & Poor's may re-enter the business this week when JPMorgan Chase is expected to announce it will sell big multiloan commercial mortgage-backed securities bearing S&P ratings. In July 2011, an S&P error resulted in a planned $1.5 billion CMBS offering by Citigroup and Goldman Sachs Group being pulled before its introduction. But this could be a turning point for S&P. For example, ING has also said it will consider CMBS with an S&P rating. The Wall Street Journal/Dow Jones Newswires (9/18) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • REIT compensation data available
    The 2012 NAREIT Compensation Survey features responses from a record-setting 113 REITs and real estate companies. NAREIT and FPL have compiled detailed compensation information for 108 positions, resulting in the largest, most comprehensive survey to date.
