The 18th annual Trigild Fall Lender Conference — billed as the industry’s longest running commercial real estate debt conference — is set for Oct. 17-19 at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego.
The speakers will include Peter Leyden of Reinvent, economist Sam Chandan, Ten-X’s Peter Muoio, and Clarion Partners’ Donald D. Sheets.
Each will discuss the trends expected to have the biggest impact on the overall economy, as well as what will be happening in the lending and commercial real estate industries.
“We are very excited to have such an informed and insightful group this year at our conference as they collectively provide their latest views on commercial real estate, the capital markets, technology and the economy,” conference founder and Trigild president Judy Hoffman said in a statement. “Additionally, our panelists and other speakers will shed insight on a variety of hot button topics such as the retail industry, multifamily, hotels, loan serving, workouts and the latest trends in receivership law.”
Leyden, an expert on new technologies and future trends, will draw on his background as a journalist and entrepreneur to address “Our Age of Global Transformation.” During his talk, Leyden will discuss the essence of key technology developments and major trends that are restructuring the world and unfolding in the decades ahead.
“As the former executive editor for Wired, Leyden’s landmark ‘Long Boom’ Wired article inspired a generation of entrepreneurs and company creators who rewrote the rules of business,” Trigild stated in a release. “Now he channels today’s tech-driven change into the realities of economic, political and demographic trends to help understand what’s next.”
Chandan will address “The State of Commercial Real Estate.” He is the Larry & Klara Silverstein chair in real estate development and investment, and associate dean for the New York University’s Schack Institute of Real Estate.
Chandan, who is known for his commentary on monetary and fiscal policy issues as well as his knowledge of capital and credit markets, is partner, global head of strategy and a member of the investment committee at Capri Capital. The multinational investment management firm has $3.8 billion of assets under management in the United States and additional investment platforms in Sub-Saharan Africa and India.
Additionally, Chandan is founder of Chandan Economics, a provider of multifamily and commercial real estate mortgage data and risk analytics to banks and bank regulators.
Muoio, executive vice president of the online real estate brokerage Ten-X, will discuss “Economic Cycle and Commercial Real Estate Cycle, Inexorably Connected or on Divergent Paths?” His talk will exam the outlook for both the economic and commercial real estate cycles.
Muoio is chief economist and head of Ten-X research, heading all commercial and residential research and analytics for Auction.com, and is senior principal of Ten-X Maximus, its third-party research provider.
Sheets, managing director at Clarion Partners, will provide his annual “Contrarian Perspective on CRE Capital Markets.”
Sheets, who serves as portfolio manager of Clarion Partners’ Special Situations Debt Group (SDDG), has nearly 20 years of leadership, property acquisition, asset management, capital formation and restructuring experience across a variety of capital structures, asset types and geographies.
