CRE Finance World Summer 2015


elcome to the Summer 2015 edition of

CRE Finance



With each edition of the magazine, we are excited to

present to you an ever improving product both in look

and content. No matter what sector of the industry you work in, I

am certain you will find several articles that broaden and enhance

your understanding of CRE finance.

In addition to the quality articles, this edition puts the spotlight

on two prevailing influences on the industry today: crowdfunding

and the plummeting price of energy on commercial real estate

finance. The magazine also features two insightful and informative

roundtable discussions. One on CRE lending broadly led by Lisa

Pendergast of Jefferies and the other on CMBS 2.0 State of the

Market written by Ed Shugrue III of Talmage, LLC.

Without the contributions of the many authors who are willing to

share their time and insightful analysis of key aspects of the CRE

industry, this magazine would not be possible. We are grateful to

each of our authors as well as to the magazine editorial board and

staff for their efforts in producing a publication of the highest caliber.

The quality of the magazine also makes it an ideal sponsorship

and advertising platform. I urge you to consider sponsorship of

CRE Finance World

. It is seen by the most significant players in

the market and it is an effective means of displaying your industry

expertise to clients, prospects and colleagues. The advantages of

this valuable sponsorship are a better value than ever.
