About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to host the CRE Lending & Investment Summit: Mezz Debt, Preferred Equity & Pure Equity on May 17th, 2017 in New York City. Higher interest rates, greater compliance costs, changing demographics and a record high of foreign investment are likely going to intensify the search and competition for CRE debt capital. The real estate lending market, which was once dominated by the big banks pre-financial crisis, now includes a greater diversity of non-bank players. With rising demand for mezzanine debt, preferred and pure equity, more and more new lenders are entering the space resulting in increased competition and aggressive deal structures, forcing companies to look for new ways to gain a competitive advantage and drive top and bottom-line growth. iGlobal Forum’s CRE Lending & Investment Summit: Mezz Debt, Preferred Equity & Pure Equity will bring together the leading senior-level lenders and borrowers focused exclusively on commercial real estate debt financing and investment. By combining high-level networking and one-to-one meetings, alongside in-depth content, the event was a key platform where you can pick up the best strategies directly from industry experts, make valuable connections, generate the best deals and realize outsized returns in a challenging interest rate environment.
