Commercial mortgage investments held by life insurance companies posted a positive total return of 2.29% in the second quarter of 2021. After a relatively slow decline in the last three quarters, the positive total return can be attributed to the significant increase in reported loan values, rising to 1.28% in Q2 from -1.77% in Q1.

"With the economy running hot, the market anticipates changes impacting consumer wages and ramifications on commercial real estate investments, said Jennifer Dimaano, Trepp Data Analyst. "The more prolonged impact of structural changes from COVID-19 on CRE investments remains unclear, but as the economy reopens, the market looks to be heading toward normalcy in the near term."

Over 12-month returns, lodging properties performed best with a total return of 6.47% as summer travel resumed in Q2.

Office property charge-offs declined from the Q1 balance of $1.5 million, signaling the beginning of a return to the office. Cumulative charge-offs on the portfolio loans increased $3.5 million from Q1 2021 to Q2 2022 compared to other commercial property loans
