Fitch Solutions and Algorithmics Advisory Service team is taking steps to try to identify potential problems in commercial real estate, including areas of delinquency, with the launch of a risk analysis and portfolio assessment service.

“With a substantial number of commercial real estate loans up for refinancing in the next few years, lacking a precise understanding of the complex risks within commercial real estate loan and securitization portfolios has become the latest area of concern for senior management teams,” said Krishnamoorthy Narasimhan of Algorithmics in a statement.

The new service will provide loan and portfolio risk reports to commercial lenders and institutional investors to assist them in identifying and monitoring risks in their commercial real estate holdings, said Narasimhan.

Fitch Solutions is part of the Fitch Group, which provides data and analytical tools, including Fitch Ratings. The solutions division helps clients monitor trends related to the credit industry, as well as changes in ratings.
