Global Conference 2011

Their level of optimism may vary, but many observers believe that the recovery has arrived for commercial real estate. Who are the major players poised to profit from the upswing? Which asset classes are going to lead the way: hospitality, industrial, multifamily, single-family or commercial? And what do investors need to know before plunging in? This panel will explore current trends in deal flow and how developers are accessing capital. Who is providing that capital, and does it take the form of debt or equity? We'll also explore the new role of CMBS and the impact of new investment strategies, such as CalPERS' shift from residential to commercial. Finally, this panel will identify current opportunities, whether they come from repositioning existing assets or financing new markets such as the Middle East.
