About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to announce the program in the long-running flagship series: the 19th Real Estate Private Equity Summit: West, which took place on November 14th and 15th in Los Angeles. As cap rates get tighter than ever and dry powder stores grow to new heights, there’s a constant debate if this mature market has hit its peak. We are seeing record levels of interest in real estate deals, but with so much capital on the sidelines and exceedingly high asset valuations, fundraising has begun to slow down. This pressure for deal closures is putting the industry at risk of dangerously speculative investments, so where are market leaders continuing to find returns?  Creative reimaginings of traditional asset classes, targeting alternative and value-add assets as core acquisitions and implementing new technologies to reduce business costs and improve overall return rates are just the beginning. This event once again brought together 200+ senior-level representatives from real estate private equity firms, private debt providers, lenders, investment banks, pension plans, insurance companies, foundations, endowments and HNWIs to discuss the future of real estate and strategies to stay competitive in an evolving market.
