 “We are happy to bring together leading CRE finance industry market participants at our Annual Conference again this year in New York,” said Lisa Pendergast, Executive Director, CREFC. “Following on our January Conference in Miami which saw record attendance, I look forward to hearing from top professionals about how the industry is managing higher expenses associated with owning commercial properties and the elevated cost of capital tied to the Fed’s efforts to tame inflation. Also, we are dedicating a full day of programming this year focused on how commercial real estate finance is addressing risks tied to climate change while facilitating the financing of green properties, and the role of sustainability in affordable housing.”
