About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to host the 7th Real Estate Mezzanine Financing Summit in New York on May 11th, to be run in conjunction with the Commercial Real Estate Debt Investment Summit. As regulatory requirements on the banking industry develop further and the lending demand goes unfulfilled, opportunities for mezz lenders in both commercial and residential real estate are on the rise. These expanding opportunities are attracting alternative competition in specialty lenders and online platforms to the space, so to combat the rising costs of mezz and competitors vying for deals, lenders are looking further into secondary, tertiary, and value-add assets. The 7th Real Estate Mezzanine Financing Summit provided a forum to discuss how to find a balance between the cost of debt and the expected return for the year even on the advent of a potential downturn market, and provided networking opportunities with over 150 senior level executives leading the mezzanine financing industry.
