Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) provides a recap of CRE Finance Council’s (CREFC) fall commercial real estate (CRE) collateralized loan obligation (CLO) conference: A World in Transition: CRE CLOs and the Loans Fueling the Post-Pandemic Era, held on October 28 in New York City.
It was fitting that CREFC’s first hybrid conference since the onset of the pandemic was its annual CRE CLO conference, as the segment is on track to achieve a record year of issuance of nearly $45 billion, which is likely to exceed commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) conduit issuance. The event attracted around 400 attendees with around 300 in-person guests. The overall sentiment across the various panels was one of confidence that CRE CLOs are a durable product type that will be around for the foreseeable future, with tailwinds to continue at or above its current pace.
