Outstanding Commercial

& Industrial Loans
All Commercial Banks, Seasonally Adjusted

June 13, 2011
bobsbox_20110613.jpgSource: Federal Reserve, Grubb & Ellis The value of commercial and industrial loans, i.e. business loans, on the balance sheets of U.S. commercial banks has been on the rebound since last fall, a positive sign for the economy. A separate survey of banks conducted quarterly by the Federal Reserve reveals that banks have been loosening C&I loan standards since the second half of last year. Moreover, the survey reveals that demand for C&I loans from creditworthy borrowers has firmed up this year. The growing availability of – and demand for – debt capital is a positive sign in a sea of lackluster economic indicators, a tailwind that will help carry the economy through the current soft patch. For commercial real estate, the rebound in C&I lending is a positive sign for leasing activity.
