8th Real Estate Mezzanine Financing Summit

Download Brochure

About The Conference

iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the 8th Real Estate Mezzanine Financing Summit taking place on June 7th, 2018 in New York.  With current low interest rates, new tax incentives and the traditional lending market getting tighter every day, high-yield debt looks extremely healthy. Institutional investors are holding more high-yield debt than even before 2008, but is this a sign the best years in this cycle are behind us?  Debate the macroeconomic trends and changes from the new tax law guiding the current state of the capital stack as well as new exposure risks from HVADC and the best alternative asset classes and markets offering signs of growth following the halt in speculative construction lending. The event will bring together deal makers creating new lending structures as well as developers and bridge lenders offering mezzanine loans for the first time.  Join today and network with 150+ senior-level representatives from real estate mezzanine and senior lenders, private debt funds, credit funds, owners and developers, mortgage REITs, pension funds and endowments, sovereign wealth funds, private equity firms and investment banks.

Key Topics Covered

  • The impacts of macroeconomic trends and the tax law on the capital stack and the real estate cycle
  • Finding alternative opportunistic and situational investments in a tight market
  • Analyzing exposure from HVADC and new documentation requirements
  • Finding development opportunities and returns following the halt in new construction
  • Looking ahead to the future of real estate mezzanine financing: evolving regulations, shifting opportunities at the turn of the cycle and new tech changing how lending is done
