REFI Global Debt Webinar Series: How healthy are the US commercial real estate debt markets?

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on all parts of the commercial real estate market, with operators, developers, and lenders all working to adapt to a world where distress is starting to make itself felt and population migration patterns are showing a shift to secondary and tertiary markets.

There is a substantial group of capital sources that include debt funds, institutional investors, family offices and high-net-worth individuals who are all looking to come to the table. But a bigger question will be what sectors and asset classes will recover, which are overpriced and how will these transactions be structured.

Join REFI Global for a series of webinars that will discuss how the debt markets are adapting to survive and even thrive in 2021, where the capital will be coming from and how lenders and borrowers will source and structure transactions.
