About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to host the CRE Debt Investing Summit: Private, Public & Preferred, in New York on May 11th, to be run in conjunction with our 7th Real Estate Mezzanine Financing Summit. The financial crisis spawned a number of new players in the commercial real estate lending arena to fill the void left by the exodus of commercial banks. As a result, the CRE lending landscape—and the universe of investable debt—has changed dramatically over the past few years. At iGlobal’s CRE Debt Investing Summit: Private, Public & Preferred, we heard from the key lending groups that comprise the new alternative CRE lending universe. This was the only senior-level forum focusing on CRE debt as an investable asset class. We learned and networked with over 150 senior executives from private equity debt funds, investment banks, pension funds, hedge funds, mortgage REITs, hard money lenders, and real estate firms.
