Information Management Network (IMN), hosts of the industry-leading real estate fund conferences, is pleased to announce its partnership with Planner Exhibitions, organizers of the acclaimed Madrid International Real Estate Exhibition (SIMA), on its inaugural The Private Equity Fund Forum on Distressed Spanish Real Estate. The forum, scheduled to coincide with SIMA2014 and taking place on May 28-29 in Madrid, will bring together local financial institutions, developers, workout and restructuring specialists, legal experts, regional and national government authorities as well as leading international investment funds to assess the current state of play in Spain’s nascent real estate recovery.
Activity in the Spanish real estate market over the last few months has shone an increasingly bright light on the opportunities for international private equity players searching for yield, with deals involving Apollo and Santander, Kennedy Wilson-Vrde Partners and Popular, TPG Capital and Caixa, HIG Capital and Sareb, Intu and CPPIB, Cerberus and Bankia and a host of others. Investor appetite Apollo, Blackstone, Goldman Sachs, KKR are also actively seeking and/or executing deals is undoubtedly ramping up, as is the industry’s penchant for innovation, as evidenced in recent moves to transpose successful single-family rental home strategies from the United States to the Spanish market.
The Private Equity Fund Forum on Distressed Spanish Real Estate will deliver an educationally-driven agenda that analyzes all of the opportunities facing both investors and troubled Spanish lenders, while also frankly assessing the many challenges that lay ahead for a full-blown recovery to take shape. As ever, there will also be plenty of networking events, allowing participants from both sides of deal teams to make connections and develop relationships. By taking advantage of IMNs deep relationships in the international private equity space and Planner Exhibitions ingrained connections with the local Spanish property market, the symposium promises to provide an ideal platform for actionable investment opportunities.
With the need for local lenders to rebuild their equity and resume lending, the influx of international private equity stands to catalyze an exciting recovery for the Spanish real estate market. We invite you to join us in Madrid and be an important part of that recovery.
IMN looks forward to seeing you in May. Don’t forget to reference discount code “GFM” when registering for 10% savings.
