TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 13, 2014) - CMLS Financial, one of Canada's largest, independently owned mortgage services companies, today released their latest Commercial Mortgage Commentary, an in-depth analysis of the commercial mortgage market in Canada.

Their February 2014 Commentary reviews some key areas for the commercial mortgage industry, including the slight downward movement in commercial mortgage spreads over the last quarter due to strong supply of capital available and how this increased supply has forced lenders to be more aggressive. It also examines how CMHC regulatory changes impacted 2013 NHA MBS issuance. Also highlighted is CMLS Financial's role in the continued revival of the Canadian CMBS market. The company arranged under the Canadian Commercial Mortgage Origination Trust (CCMOT) banner a $394 million CCMOT 2013-2 transaction that was secured by 42 commercial mortgage loans on five year terms and included $336 million in AAA certificates.
