Trepp partners with iShares to integrate CMBS ETF


Trepp, a provider of information, analytics and technology to the commercial real estate and banking markets, has partnered with BlackRock’s iShares exchange-traded funds business to integrate the iShares Barclays CMBS Bond Fund into its CMBS Analytics product offering.

The iShares fund, which launched in February 2012, is the first ETF to provide exposure to investment grade commercial mortgage-backed securities.

It was designed to help investors express tactical views on the commercial real estate market and to track the performance of CMBS.

Trepp has leveraged its CMBS data to provide clients with a detailed overview of the iShares Barclays CMBS Bond Fund’s holdings and collateral performance via a dedicated screen.

For more in-depth analysis, a Public iShares Barclays CMBS Bond Fund Portfolio has been created within Trepp CMBS, allowing clients to use Trepp’s portfolio analytics capabilities for both surveillance and scenario analysis.

"We are pleased to be working with iShares on the integration of the iShares Barclays CMBS Bond Fund into Trepp’s products," says Manus Clancy, senior managing director at Trepp. "The iShares Barclays CMBS Bond Fund gives investors efficient access to the asset class while the Trepp data provides enormous transparency. Together, it will allow investors with an appetite for commercial real estate to quickly add to their exposure."

All holdings data for the fund is updated by means of a nightly feed that is subsequently used to provide the most up-to-date information possible.
