Member Publications

CRE Finance Council produces a number of marketing products to keep members updated on current news about the commercial real estate finance market.

CRE Finance World is a tri-annual publication, authored by leading participants from our industry, that extensively covers the commercial real estate finance market.  Recent issues have focused on the international marketplace, collateral performance/credit risk and investor concerns. In addition to two printed editions (Winter and Spring/Summer), CRE Finance Council has added a digital edition which will be published in Autumn as a standalone issue and as a complement to our two printed editions.

The Weekly Briefing is CRE Finance Council's electronic newsletter. It is considered the primary source of information that originates from the CRE Finance Council's global offices.  The Weekly Briefing, which is distributed to Members and other market participants, features an editorialized summary of news and issues affecting commercial real estate finance that week, and provides key Government Relations, U.S. and European Regulatory and Forum issues advocated by CREFC on behalf of our Members.  It also provides upcoming deadlines and information on our Meetings and Events and announces particular initiatives important to our constituencies. 

CRE Finance Council's 'Connection' and 'Alert' notifications provide market participants with breaking news that we believe warrants your attention.

The CMBS E-Primer is a comprehensive educational resource in a convenient e-book format.  The CMBS E-Primer gives the reader an introductory, yet comprehensive, overview of the process of Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities, or CMBS.
