Bisnow's National Real Estate Finance Summit

Banks may be cautious in their lending, but they are still distributing capital. The caution though has been great for other lenders- global debt funds hitting $37B in total aggregate capital in 2017 compared to $24B in 2014.

Developers have found unique strategies to raise funds in their ventures and have succeeded in building. Will absorption follow in suit? 

Please join Bisnow and the real estate finance industry's most influential leaders for one of the most important & informative conferences of the year in New York City! 

As always, Bisnow promises plenty of networking opportunities to connect in a fun and fast-paced atmosphere in the Big Apple. we hope to see you there!
