Investors Forum

The Investor Forum is comprised of Investment-Grade and B-Piece buyers and provides participants with an interactive platform to discuss issues relating to investment in CMBS bonds throughout the capital stack. Due to the diversity of the investment structure, the Forum is divided into Investment-Grade and B-Piece Buyer Sub-Forums.

The below Sub-Forums are closed to non-investors, however, Forum sessions at the January and June Conferences are open to registered attendees.
