Samantha Rowan | Real Estate Capital USA

We’re very excited to introduce you to Real Estate Capital USA, a new title from PEI Media, that provides a clearinghouse for analysis of the US commercial real estate debt markets.

The markets are growing rapidly, with substantial capital formation around lending and burgeoning interest from domestic and institutional investors. Real Estate Capital USA exists to apply critical thinking to the news and trends that you are seeing in the market each day.

In short, our mission at Real Estate Capital USA is to deliver highly analytical coverage of the forces and diverse stakeholders shaping this rapidly evolving market. Our daily-updated website, daily and weekly email alerts, bi-monthly magazines and podcasts will bring you the insightful perspective you already associate with our affiliate titles, PERE and Real Estate Capital Europe.

That insight will highlight opportunities in the market and other times the challenges looming ahead. Our inaugural cover story topic, distress, is a case of the latter. While substantial distress is still a way off, there are pockets of concern that the liquidity that has held off foreclosures and auctions has left the market in a precarious position once the credit cycle turns, as it inevitably will.

Our team, which includes reporters William Johnson, Mario Marroquin and Anna-Marie Beal, will be at the forefront of these discussions on what happens next with seasoned balance sheet and securitized lenders and borrowers, as well as the newer companies carving out their place with novel strategies and approaches.

We are eager to present Real Estate Capital USA to the world. Your feedback is welcomed; we want to know what you think of what we are covering and what we should be adding. Enjoy our first issue.
