New York, NY - May 3, 2011
Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. announces the issuance of $634.5 million in commercial mortgage pass-through securities, backed by loans originated by Cantor Commercial Real Estate (CCRE). This transaction marks the first time in almost a decade that a new entrant into the U.S. CMBS market has originated, securitized and lead-managed its own deal. Barclays Capital acted as co-lead, with CastleOak Securities, L.P. serving as co-manager on the transaction. The offering, CFCRE Commercial Mortgage Trust 2011-C1, was rated by Moody's Investors Service Inc., Fitch Inc. and Realpoint LLC.
Cantor Fitzgerald became active in the CMBS marketplace when it hired a veteran team of CMBS professionals led by Anthony Orso. "CCRE's national footprint has allowed it to quickly become a leader in the re-emergence of the CMBS conduit market. We are committed to middle-market borrowers and will continue to grow our franchise," said Orso, Chief Executive Officer of CCRE.
The 2011-C1 mortgage pool is collateralized by 38 fixed-rate mortgages loans secured by 67 properties located in 22 states, with the largest property concentrations in Texas and New York. The mortgage properties consist primarily of office (44 percent) and multifamily (22 percent) with smaller concentrations of self storage, manufactured housing and mixed use.
