Trimont attended CREFC Europe’s Autumn Conference last week
CREFC Europe is the trade association for the region’s commercial real estate finance industry, which aims to communicate the strategic objectives and interests of the industry to policymakers, regulators, media, property owners and debt investors. Trimont has been a partner sponsor throughout 2021.
“Building Back Better” was the overarching theme of the programme, which entailed a sharp focus on the climate crisis and its implications for real estate, the built environment and how they are financed. Speaker panels included representation from HSBC, Barclays, Allianz Real Estate, British Land, Argent and many others, with the likes of ESG, the evolution of the debt market and the repurposing agenda comprising key discussion topics.
Dean Harris, Managing Director, Credit & Asset Management – EMEA, commented:-
“CREFC is a valuable asset for the CRE finance industry and it is important for the membership to come together to propose ideas and share knowledge with one another. There were a number of brilliant discussions, including one around the future of Debt Funds and Alternative Lenders, with the general consensus being that these lenders are working more collaboratively than ever with banks to finance deals – whether that be via whole loan origination (and subsequent restructuring of the capital stack) or warehouse / repo loan structures. It was a sentiment underpinned be a strong appreciation for the fact that the market and its key stakeholders will continue to adapt in the face of defining challenges such as the climate and a recovering global economy”.
