About the Conference

iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the 24th Real Estate Private Equity Summit, which will take place on March 29-30, 2023 in New York

The commercial real estate industry has undergone a sea change this year, with funding for deals becoming more costly and more difficult to secure. In this period of uncertainty characterized by volatility in the capital markets, rising interest rates, inflation, liquidity challenges, higher cost of capital, and the possibility of a recession, transaction volume has declined significantly. Banks and insurance companies have pulled back on real estate lending, dramatically reducing the availability of debt and increasing the cost. Property owners and some private equity firms are seeking alternative sources of capital. At the same time, private equity firms are becoming more active in lending.

Current economic conditions will result in more distress in the real estate market in the coming months. There is growing investor interest in distressed investment and restructuring opportunities in real estate. 

A trillion dollars of real estate debt will mature in 2023. Most of that debt will be refinanced at a much higher interest rate and there’s going to be a lesser amount of debt proceeds. More equity will be required to move forward with deals. Refinancing will create new opportunities for lenders and investors.

The 24th Real Estate Private Equity Summit will provide insights into the sectors, markets, and strategies that are likely to produce the best risk-adjusted returns for investors and lenders. The Summit will also delve into alternative sources of capital to facilitate deals.

Through panel discussions, interactive roundtables, three intensive workshops, and a keynote interview with a real estate luminary, the Summit offers a comprehensive view of the industry's opportunities and challenges.

At the summit, you will learn from and network with leaders in commercial real estate: real estate private equity firms, asset managers, institutional investors, lenders, owners, and developers.
