Banks are facing concerns as rising interest rates undermine the value of their assets, leading to insolvency and closures. The Federal Reserve’s tightening measures could potentially shut down 186 banks. CRE loans pose a particular risk, especially for smaller banks with less than $100 billion in assets. The tight monetary environment, changes in demand for office space, and higher interest rates increase credit risk for banks with CRE loan concentrations. The office and multifamily sectors are vulnerable, with overbuilding in multifamily properties and the need for refinancing posing challenges for construction loans.
