PNM Partner Gene Leone Moderates at Bisnow’s Chicago Capital Markets Event

Gene Leone (Partner – Pircher, Nichols & Meeks LLP) moderated a panel entitled, “CRE Capital Outlook – A Changing Landscape,” at Bisnow’s Chicago Capital Markets: Debt, Equity, 2018 & Net Lease Forecast event on March 15, 2018 at the newly renovated 2017 N. Mendell lofts.  

The event brought together Chicago’s top owners, investors and economists to discuss investment activity over the past year and share predictions for 2018.

Panels throughout the day brought to light a number of key market observations, many surrounding the recent turbulence in real estate capital markets that has not been seen in years. In this climate, lenders are exercising caution to protect themselves in the event of potential economic downturn. Even so, the debt market’s popularity continues to rise, as new capital is increasingly raised to finance the projects banks cannot under current regulations. When structured well, this type of loan is even more attractive for borrowers.
