Why CRE debt now?

Reduced competition
due to lack of liquidity; many banks and levered lenders have ceased new investment activity
A strong pipeline
is anticipated given ongoing loan maturities and event-driven strategic opportunities
Attractive risk-adjusted returns
are expected given reduced competition, better pricing and conservatively adjusted underwriting and valuations
