A Santa Barbara Group Sponsored Event

An assortment of sandwiches, salads, and drinks will be provided.

Commercial real estate has delivered a 6.5% average annual income over the past 20 years and market participants have historically accessed the opportunity in commercial real estate through equity-based assets. With over $3 trillion in debt outstanding and a growing need for capital, commercial real estate debt represents a sizable and timely opportunity for investors.

Join our session to learn why FS Investments and leading real estate investment manager Rialto Capital teamed up to bring you FS Credit Real Estate Income Trust to meet investors’ income goals while managing risk in today’s changing market environment.

Lara will talk about why income may be a larger driver of returns than rising equity valuations going forward, how commercial real estate debt may help preserve capital in a rising cap rate environment, how it has performed during periods of volatility and what experienced real estate investors look for when lending to commercial properties.
