Member testimonials:

CREFC Europe creates a forum to allow our diverse industry to join together to consider and research the key issues of today as well what may be emerging to impact tomorrow, providing a means of combining as one powerful voice to help influence policymakers and regulators alike.” Barry Fowler, Managing Director, Alternative Income, Aviva Investors

“CREFC Europe serves an important function in helping the industry tackle thematic issues appropriately. Its excellent conferences and seminar programmes deliver rich content for our teams. We are particular fans of the YPREF project which gives our younger professionals a group from which to learn and network.” Jessica Tomlinson, Head of Real Estate London, Corporate Banking, Barclays.

CREFC Europe provides us with a flow of information about issues that will be affecting our sector across Europe, a place to discuss these issues with others in the industry who are affected by them and a vehicle to have input into how those issues are converted into regulation, standards or guidelines. There’s no other organisation that provides this on a European basis for the real estate debt sector.”  Clive Bull, Director, Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch.
