Concurrent Session- The Capital Stack: Optimizing Structure & Returns

April 30, 2019 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM Ballroom B Concurrent Sessions

With construction costs and interest rates increasing, traditional first mortgage bank debt is no longer sufficient to fund development projects.  To fill the gap, developers are relying more on preferred equity and mezzanine debt.  In addition to EB-5 and crowd funding, which have been utilized on a limited basis, Opportunity Zone investments now provide a new option to supplement the capital stack.  Join us for an in-depth discussion on how the various financing vehicles can be layered together to maximize returns.  Our panel will discuss different capital stack options and considerations, including the pros and cons of each.
