About The Conference

Hear leading senior-level industry experts address the key challenges that the U.S. real estate mezzanine financing industry is facing amidst the current global pandemic. COVID-19 is impacting deal flow, capital stacks, and closings and with the future of valuations uncertain, leverage has also shifted. With the increased likelihood of distressed situations and foreclosures, borrowers and lenders are being compelled to work together on loan modifications and remedies. National and international political shifts will also have huge implications for the market. Some of the impacts may be temporary while others may reflect longer term or permanent changes.
