9:00-9:30AM Welcome and Opening Remarks
9:30-10:30 AM View from the LPs: Private Credit, Pension Funds, and Capital Raising Alternative lenders have not only been gaining CRE finance market share by making more loans to borrowers in the past few years but also made significant headway in raising capital. We'll start the day by hearing perspectives from the limited partner side of this equation. This conversation will focus on where commercial real estate and debt strategies fit into the portfolio of various investors with exposure to this sector as well as their outlook. Regardless of what capital source you represent or if you're an intermediary, you'll learn more about the trends that are driving the growth of debt funds.
10:30-10:45PM networking break
10:45-11:45AM Debt Funds, Alternative Lenders and Construction The composition of lenders financing commercial real estate projects has shifted during this cycle. Given traditional lender appetite for certain construction project risk as well as external constraints, non-bank lenders have stepped in to fill a void. This conversation will consider the evolving role of different capital providers in construction financing from both traditional and alternative lenders.
12:00-1:15PM Lunch (Key Note Speaker)
1:15-2:15PM Financing the Financier-Warehouse Lines vs. Collateralized Loan Obligation (CLO) Financing Vehicles One of the interesting components of debt funds and their business strategies is their role as both a borrower and a lender. In this discussion, we'll hear about how various firms are financing their commercial real estate financing operations. Whether tapping bank warehouse lines or tapping the capital markets through issuing a CRE CLO, this panel will highlight some key issues and marketplace trends as well as why they impact debt funds.
2:15-2:30PM networking break
2:30-3:30PM Public REITs Take Center Stage This real estate cycle has been defined by both its length as well as increasing marketplace interest in floating rate short term bridge loans. One of the structural trends associated with private equity increasing its presence in commercial real estate lending in particular has been an increase in the number of public mortgage REITs in the past few years. This discussion will cover what is happening in the REIT space and what is expected going forward. Don't miss the opportunity to hear where REITs fit into the commercial real estate finance ecosystem today.
3:30-3:45PM networking break
3:45-4:45PM Crunching the Numbers: Conversation on Late Stage Cycle, Rising Rates and Market Outlook The closing panel will convene industry veterans to talk about their perspective on today's commercial real estate market, the economic outlook and where debt funds and other capital sources fit into the financing picture broadly. This discussion will round out the day with a variety of perspectives looking at the big picture and where the market may be headed. Whether your firm is a traditional capital source, debt fund, REIT or mortgage banker, you won't want to miss this perspective.
