The CRE Finance Council (CREFC) is the trade association for the $4.4 trillion commercial real estate finance industry. More than 300 companies
and 12,000 individuals are members of CREFC. Member firms include balance sheet and securitized lenders, loan and bond investors, private equity firms, servicers and rating agencies, among others.
Our industry plays a critical role in the financing of office buildings, industrial and warehouse properties, multifamily housing, retail facilities, hotels, and other types of commercial real estate that help form the backbone of the American economy.
CREFC promotes liquidity, transparency, and efficiency in the commercial real estate finance markets. It does this by acting as a legislative and regulatory advocate
for the industry, playing a vital role in setting market standards and best practices, and providing education
for market participants.
CREFC also hosts globally recognized events
that bring together market participants from leading companies and organizations. Complementing these major conferences are regular After-Work Seminars
and regional conferences
held throughout the year.
