Are you a young professional looking for education programming in commercial real estate finance? 

We welcome you to join CRE Finance Council for an after-work education session on Thursday, November 1st, in New York City. Sponsored by Dechert LLP, this program will focus on the basics of underwriting stabilized commercial real estate from a debt perspective. 

Topics will focus on:
- Fundamental property cash flow / market analysis for different asset types (i.e. how to evaluate the quality of the real estate, market, and stability of cash flows)
- How to evaluate debt metrics by property type (i.e. is the loan appropriate for the real estate)
- Additional factors which can affect a credit decision (i.e. sponsor / borrower analysis, loan structure to mitigate against risks, etc.)
