These offered ascend to the watched contrast.

"The suggested loan cost was high at 10.77 for every penny, due primarily to the higher interest cost on household obligation. The portfolio is further portrayed by a generally high share of residential obligation falling due inside the following one year.

"Loan fee danger is high, since developing obligation will must be renegotiated at business sector rates, which could be higher than financing costs on existing obligation. The outside trade danger is generally low given the prevalence of residential obligation in the portfolio."
