- Although the economic effects of the pandemic appear to be easing, the impacts, including on the commercial real estate (CRE) sector, may be lasting, may have exacerbated existing secular trends, or both. “Commercial Real Estate: An Update on Bank Lending Amid the Evolving Pandemic Backdrop” highlights the financial performance of banks concentrated in CRE lending as well as examination observations about CRE lending risk management practices. The article also describes the FDIC’s forward-looking supervisory focus for banks with significant exposure in this sector.

The article also describes the treatment of subordinated debt for deposit insurance assessment purposes.
