Digital Assets Report

You can't have failed to notice recent industry headlines celebrating the return of mezzanine financing. The buzz is warranted.

With first mortgage and construction finance lenders remaining conservative and the continued demand for gap financing, more and more investors are jumping on the mezzanine bandwagon in the intensifying chase for yield.

As competition for good deals and credit-worthy borrowers heats up, lenders are originating loans that fall outside of their core product lines and deal structures are becoming more aggressive.

Increased competition amongst lenders can only signal good news for the borrower community. But with increased options amid an evolving real estate capital market comes a greater need for borrowers to understand the cost of capital in its different forms.

Bringing borrowers and lenders the latest on real estate mezzanine finance in the context of the overall capital stack, we are proud to once again offer IMN's Borrower & Investor Forum on Real Estate Mezzanine Financing & Subordinated Debt, November 10, 2014, New York City.

Key figures within the owner-operator and lending communities convene to discuss strategies for sourcing and arranging financing for new acquisitions, development and refinancing from both perspectives.

Covering the entire capital stack with a focus on mezzanine finance and subordinated debt we also address the latest high-yield debt strategies
for investors.
