Outstanding Commercial & Industrial Loans
All Commercial Banks, Seasonally Adjusted
March 26, 2012
Sources: 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 October 2010, providing fuel for expanding companies and boosting the recovery. A separate survey of banks conducted quarterly by the Federal Reserve reveals that domestic banks eased pricing terms during the fourth quarter. Banks saw stronger demand from firms of all sizes with demand from small firms rising to its highest level since 2005. The growing availability of – and demand for – debt capital is helping to propel the recent improvement in the labor market and other economic indicators. For commercial real estate, the rebound in C&I lending is a positive sign for leasing activity.
