REFI US Breakfast Briefing: Tracking the Rising US CLO Market
Request attendence

Join REFI US for our February Breakfast Briefing, where we will be discussing the rising US CLO market.

This event is open to REFI US members and first-time trialists. If you have questions please reach out to Lana Vuletic.

The commercial real estate collateralized loan obligation market continues to grow, with issuance and competition both rising in a low-yield, late-cycle market. The sector is emerging as an alternative method of financing, but with this, traditional boundaries and structures are being challenged, according to Kurt Pollem, a managing director at DBRS Morningstar, who will moderate the panel.

Key topics will include:

  • The inclusion of more transitional, non-income producing properties in loan pools.
  • The impact of the purchase of sub-performing loans out of loan pools, including a shorter-than-expected investment.
  • The big picture impact from geopolitical turmoil, including the current instability in the Middle East.
  • Managing and acquiring information about the underlying assets in loan pools.
  • The difference between today’s CRE CLOs and their pre-financial crisis predecessors.
  • How investors are navigating the differences between loan pools in individual CRE CLOs.
