SBA Update

March 26, 2018

The SBA sector quieted down last week, as investors digested the prepayment numbers for floaters and boost of supply via the SBIC auction from the week prior. Considering the lack of new inputs, the business pace actually sustained itself surprisingly well, while supplying little in the way of news worthy print.


Floating-Rate 7(a) Pools




Fixed-Rate (DCPC and SBIC) Pools


Government Guaranteed Loan Trading



Demand for floating-rate pools, both near par priced and fuller coupon offerings with prices well above par, remained strong, buoyed by the Fed’s rate move and by clearer understanding of new prepayment patterns. Fixed-rate activity dropped versus the prior week as there were no auctions, though a considerable amount of activity occurred in secondary markets. Government-guaranteed loan activity continues to be limited by availability, as demand remains strong.
