CRE Finance Council Forums are market constituencies that drive the global commercial real estate finance industry. Our Forums include GSE Multifamily, High Yield Distressed Realty Assets, Investment-Grade Bondholders, B-Piece Buyers, Issuers, Portfolio Lenders, and Servicers. Each of these Forums interacts and addresses issues critical to their business sector and works to achieve solutions that serve a common purpose.

As these Forums collaborate, CRE Finance Council’s objectives are to represent all Forum participants, manage disparate and converging views, advocate a consensus of positions to policy and lawmakers, educate members, develop best practices, and work toward the betterment of the entire commercial real estate finance market.
