Agenda

8:00am – Registration & Refreshments

8:30am – Welcome

8:45am – Pump the breaks or full speed ahead?
Is the U.S. commercial real estate market set to continue its long bull run or are cracks starting to appear? While the equity and debt markets are flush with cash, major metros might not be ready to absorb heavy development pipelines and overhangs of luxury condos.

9:30am – Breakout Roundtables
Tech Side Story
Technology is disrupting the commercial real estate market in some very obvious – and some not so obvious ways. Efficient use of technology can simplify and reduce the risks associated with due diligence, acquisition, and management of commercial property and debt portfolios but the industry continues to be slow to adopt change.
Emerging U.S. real estate markets
Richmond, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Providence are seeing more interest from commercial real estate investors as more corporations are looking at cost-effective alternatives to the major metros.
Good to the last drop (of value)
Commercial real estate investors are increasingly using complex financing structures to squeeze every last drop of value from properties, with a rise in preferred equity, mezzanine debt, stretch mortgages, and more esoteric structures like ground leases. Find out how these structures work, the best use of each, and how these strategies can have an impact on returns.

10:15am – Breakout Roundtables
Operations are the new black
Commercial real estate private equity funds tend to keep accounting and fund management services in house but there’s growing evidence of the benefits of working with a fund administrator.
Automatic for the End Users
Customization and controlling a tenant or user experience is becoming a key factor for successful office and retail owners. Find out what institutional investors are doing to enhance the appeal of their space, both curbside and in the sky.
Double double, lending and trouble
The commercial real estate debt markets have been resilient through a series of recent, minor geopolitical crises. But will a major crisis spark a 1998-style credit freeze?

11:15am – General Session: Why real estate – why now?
U.S.-based pension funds, foundations, and endowments are allocating more capital into commercial real estate as a pervasive low-interest rate environment has set off a search for yield. Find out what this segment of the institutional investment market is looking for and what they’re worried about as the current cycle forges ahead.

12:00pm – Close
