NEW YORK CITY-RealShare Structured Finance will offer something for everyone as the day-long conference will feature one-on-one interviews, panel sessions and networking opportunities. The event is designed to bring together owners, investors and developers with the lenders and financiers who finance their deals.

More than 250 industry professionals are expected to be in attendance for the November 30 forum at the Roosevelt Hotel. The conference is produced by Real Estate Media Network, publisher of Real Estate Forum, Real Estate New York and GlobeSt.com.

Michael Desiato, group managing director, Real Estate Media, will introduce the second-annual event as well as keynote speaker Dean Adler, co-founder and principal of Lubert-Adler. Adler’s address will focus on issues affecting the investment arena such as the fluctuating interest-rate environment.

Adler will be followed by the Capital Sources and Investment Banker Power Panel. Lenders and investment bankers including moderator Jeffrey Lenobel, senior partner, Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP; Richard Katzenstein, senior managing director, MMA Realty Capital Inc. and Bill Lafferty, senior vice president, Countrywide Commercial Real Estate Finance, will take a look at the state of the industry. They will also discuss the outlook for the coming year.

“RealShare Structured Finance brings together the users of capital with the providers of capital like no other event in the industry,” says Richard Kelley, director of the RealShare Conference Series. “Investors and developers like to know the range of their financing options and what they will cost, and capital sources want to be in front these borrowers and potential clients.”

The sophisticated financing structures of deals will be the topic of the next panel discussion. Moderator Jeffrey Newman, senior partner, Sills Cummis will lead a panel featuring Ed Coco, managing director, GE Commercial Finance Real Estate;Hugh Hall, chief operating officer, Gramercy Capital Corp.; Schecky Schechner, managing director, national head of origination, JPMorgan Chase and Frank Sullivan, regional director, Wrightwood Capital. The group will explore how to find the best blend of deals and the challenges all the parties to the deal face today.

The Luncheon Presentation will feature a second power panel discussion. The Opportunity and Private Equity Fund Power Panel. Firms with active opportunity and private equity funds will discuss intentions and strategies. Moderated by Dennis Yeskey, national director, Real Estate Capital Markets, Deloitte, others on the panel will be Russell Appel, president, Praedium Group; Jeffrey Barclay, managing director, acquisitions group, ING Clarion Partners; Douglas Lyons, managing director, Transwestern Investment Co. LLC and Michael McNamera, managing director, Lehman Brothers.

A number of concurrent sessions will be held throughout the day. Topics include mezzanine and preferred equity markets updates for various sized transactions, trends in CMBS and a bridge loan market update. Capping off the day will be a discussion where owners, investors and developers assess the investment and financing market. That will be followed by a cocktail reception.

“This isn’t an event where you’re charged an exorbitant registration just to wind up with lenders talking to lenders or attorneys to attorneys,” Kelley continues. “RealShare Structured Finance offers solid information, a great audience and tremendous value and will once again be an outstanding event.”
