Join the CREFC Europe Spring Conference today for a full day of sessions in central London covering the major European real estate finance issues and debated with some of the markets most experienced professionals.
Today’s CREFC Europe Spring Conference – hosted by law firm K&L Gates at its One New Change office at St. Paul’s – covers a multitude of topics, kicking off with a network breakfast from 8:30am, before a keynote speech by Deutsche Bank’s Dr Thomas Mayer, a senior advisor to the bank’s management and key clients.
CREFC Europe is offering a discounted walk-in registration fee of £600 for delegates which register today before midday.
Yesterday’s half-day conference drew more than 250 delegates with a full summary available through Real Estate Capital’s editorial team via CREFC tomorrow morning.
Some of the key messages from yesterday’s sessions, according to REC, included:
- In the conference’s opening “big picture” session, a reduction of €700bn of mainly debt capital over the next five years will only be replaced by €200bn of debt and equity. But, delegates were told, the conversion is not “one-for-one”
- German open-ended funds have around €25bn worth of assets to sell over the next four years
- Loan portfolio sales will continue, but they are not the most sustainable game because of personnel-heavy bidder commitments as well as high “dead deal costs”.
Among the sessions today, include:
- Inter-creditor agreements: the art of the negotiation – debated by senior figures from Chenavari Investment Managers, Deutsche Bank, DRC Capital and Starwood Capital;
- How will the Impending Maturities be dealt with? Discussed by panelists from Brookland Partners, Hatfield Philips, K&L Gates and Mount Street;
- Speakers from AgFe, HSBC, CW Capital Asset Management and Wells Fargo debate the US versus European CMBS markets;
- The resurgent European CMBS market is picked apart by speakers from BAML, Cairn Capital and Deutsche Bank;
- Which is followed by a lively discussion about the GRAND CMBS restructuring agreement from some of those most closely involved; followed by
- An open forum discussion covering the two-day conference’s key take away themes, led by senior figures from Renshaw Bay, HSBC, Allen & Overy and BAML.
K&L Gates close the two-day event with a networking drinks reception.
Come along today for just £600 at K&L Gates offices at One New Change, St. Paul’s.
