January SBA Prepayment Speeds

January 2019


Equipment and Real-Estate SBA 7(a) pools both gave back some of the December declines and posted increases month-over-month. Equipment pools overall posted a manageable increase of only 2%, but this warrants taking a deeper look at the vintage buckets. Real-Estate pools, on the other hand, posted a 16% increase.

Equipment Loan Pools

While in total, CPRs for the Equipment pool population increased by only 2%, there is quite a bit of variance even when only looking at vintages with meaningful outstanding balances. For example, investors concentrated in 2017 originations are looking at a 30% increase month-over-month whereas those with more exposure to 2016 and 2015 origination are respectively looking at declines of 4% and 20%.

Real-Estate Loan Pools

Real-Estate speeds by vintage were more uniform. Every vintage of consequence (save 2018) posted fairly hefty month-over-month increases at or north of 20%.
