More than 200 leaders in the commercial real estate finance industry are expected to gather next week to attend the Commercial Observer’s inaugural Financing Commercial Real Estate Forum Los Angeles in downtown LA on December 11, 2018, from 7:30 a.m to 12:00 p.m. at the InterContinental Downtown. HFF is one of the event sponsors.
In addition to sponsoring the event, HFF Senior Managing Director Bill Fishel, who is also co-head of HFF’s Los Angeles office, serves on the event’s advisory board, which the Commercial Observer reports they carefully selected from a slate of industry leaders to develop and shape the half-day event.
The event itself features a slate of experienced professionals in the commercial real estate finance industry who will impart their wisdom on everything from the current lending environment to local and international markets. There are seven sessions in total, including opening remarks by Robyn Reiss, executive director of the Commercial Observer and opportunities for networking.
Fishel is also moderating the session titled Cash Overflow: A Look at Lender Appetites, Competition and Forecast, which will welcome both traditional and alternative lenders from Wells Fargo, Crescit Capital, Meridian Capital Group, Starwood Property Trust and CIM Group. The group will “discuss what transactions they are financing and why, their overall appetite thus far in 2018 and how the landscape has changed over the past six months.”
