Real Estate Private Funds

Forge The Future of CRE: Network with Titans & Shape Tomorrow's Deals.



IMN's commitment to the real estate private fund industry stretches back to the early 1990s witnessing the industry's remarkable transformation.

We observed firsthand the birth and growth of several asset classes, as US real estate values rebounded, and billion-dollar funds became multiplied 10-fold. Today, these sophisticated players employ a wide range of different real estate investment strategies, investing across countless asset classes, while navigating the challenges of the current inflationary and high interest rate environment.

Our CRE dealmaking events reflect this evolution, connecting you with the industry's heavyweights.

Here, you'll gain insights from:

  • The largest funds leading the way: Learn their opportunistic and value-finding strategies and discover the latest investment trends.
  • Rising stars and innovative newcomers: Gain a fresh perspective on fundraising, collaboration, and identifying untapped opportunities.

Forge strategic connections and learn from industry veterans and pioneers as they discuss the latest in attracting capital, launching new funds, structuring deals, targeting market dislocation and navigating today’s capital markets.
