About the Event

In 2018, Debt Funds originated nearly $70 billion in commercial real estate loans. Debt funds became a popular alternative source of commercial financing when banks couldn’t offer commercial loans. Although some banks and agency lenders have come back to the commercial financing space, many still do not offer construction loans or bridge loans which makes Debt Funds a viable source.

Join MBA Education and industry experts for an in-depth overview of Debt Funds and how they differ from other lending types. Our panelists will discuss how Debt Funds are structured, the market need they meet and the type of lending they offer. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn more about the regulatory environment of Debt Funds portfolios. Join the experts to learn more about this source of commercial lending.
