These were the top 10 outer borough loans in November

The largest outer borough loan last month was once again in Long Island City.

The top loan in November was for $275 million for Tishman Speyer’s 28-10 Queens Plaza South, better known as the “JACX” office complex. Queens had four spots on the top 10 overall, while Brooklyn had five, the Bronx had one and Staten Island had none.

The loans were worth about $1.4 billion overall, and every loan in the top five cracked the $100 million mark. Major deals included $269 million from Newmark Knight Frank to the Blackstone Group for Parker Towers and $228 million from M&T Bank and BNY Mellon to Doug Steiner for Admiral’s Row.

The full list of the top 10 outer borough loans for November is as follows:

1.) Ozark – $275 million

The largest outer borough loan in November was $275 million from Bank of the Ozarks for Tishman Speyer’s “JACX” complex in Long Island City. The office development is located at 28-10 Queens Plaza South and includes a pair of 27-story towers that are already 75 percent leased, according to Tishman. This includes a 250,000-square-foot lease from WeWork that the co-working giant signed in 2016. The complex should be done by the end of 2019.

Vanguard lowers minimums on index funds, highlighting ongoing price war

The barriers are now lower to invest in several dozens of Admiral Shares of funds from Vanguard — a company long celebrated for its low-cost index funds.

On Monday, the Vanguard Group announced it is lowering the minimum amounts customers need to invest for 38 of its Admiral Shares class index mutual funds to $3,000 from $10,000. Admiral Shares of funds are a separate share class than the regular investor class. They are cheaper but require a higher minimum investment. The company said the lowered minimums represent expense savings of 15 to 71 percent over the investor shares, depending on the fund.

The latest chapter in ongoing price war

The news represents the latest punch in an ongoing price war  in the investment world. For months, firms have been slashing prices to compete with rivals and win over new clients. In August, JPMorgan Chase announced You Invest, a platform that lets investors make 100 free trades on exchange-traded funds and stocks for the first year. This summer, Fidelity Investments launched four index funds that charge no management fees. And fintech darling  Robinhood  lets its users trade stocks and ETFs for free.
