The success of NCB’s commercial real estate lending efforts is partly due to its increasingly popular portfolio lending product, a great option for many commercial borrowers in today’s tougher financial marketplace. In the second half of 2007, NCB shifted its focus from loans destined for the CMBS market to an “on-book” portfolio lending program. This flexibility has allowed the Bank to stay highly-competitive in the commercial real estate market. NCB offers fixed-rate and variable loans from three, five- and seven-year terms with amortization periods up to 30 years, for all commercial property types.

Portfolio lending at NCB has great latitude in many respects including loan documentation, servicing, insurance requirements, and loan terms. There are no rigid requirements that are securitization driven, and one of the most attractive features is the flexible prepayment options and partial recourse. In addition, NCB is rated primary, master and special servicer, and service all of its loans, providing a stable relationship over time.
