"Over the past year, we saw record CRE CLO transaction volume spurred by increasing investor appetite in these products," said Lisa Pendergast, Executive Director, CREFC. "As the industry continues to recover from the impacts of the pandemic and prepares for regulatory shifts, including the transition from LIBOR, it's important to think about what's next for the market and the evolution of CLOs, from both an issuer and investor perspective. We look forward to hosting our members and industry leaders in New York to discuss this pertinent topic."

The health and safety of conference attendees are a top priority for CREFC. All CREFC events follow applicable CDC, federal, state, local and venue rules and regulations as it relates to COVID-19.
