The DD Talks Finance & Restructuring conference was held at a poignant time with a backdrop of rising interest rates, costs and inflation. The IMF refers to this current period as a ‘Crisis upon a crisis’, in the wake of the pandemic and the developing Ukraine/Russia situation however what was most noticeable was this was a market that seemed to be brimming with confidence and optimism, at the halfway point of 2022.

Roger also had the honour of hosting a panel of experts to debate the European Commercial Real Estate Debt & Finance Market – The Lender Perspective. 

The panel members: 

Martin Erbe - Managing Director at HELABA 

Debora Sobel – Head of Debt Origination at Allianz Real Estate 

Annette Marbs - Head Product Financing & Treasury at Swiss Life Asset Management Deutschland 

Alexander Oswatitsch - Head of Real Estate Debt Europe at DWS 

Emma Huepfl - Managing Director at CBRE Investment Management 

The panel, some of the best brains in real estate investment, institutional asset management, commercial banking and the capital markets held a lively and in-depth discussion on inflation, interest rates, recession fears for 2023/24 and the impact of the Ukraine/Russian conflict on the global economy.
