Our Members

We are proud to have the organisations listed below in the current membership of CREFC Europe, and hope that you will want to join them if you are not already a member.


CREFC Europe has consistently provided an effective forum for the exchange of ideas, the promotion and education of best practices and the enhancement of the industry with borrowers, lenders, investors and regulators. The organisation is professionally run and works closely with its members and a range of other industry organisations, bringing together a wide representation of the commercial real estate finance industry. In addition, I have enjoyed the events, be it After Work Seminars, conferences, educational series and social/networking ones, organised and sponsored by it.” – Christian Janssen, TH Real Estate

Over the last 20 years real estate has become an institutionalised and mainstream asset class. Specialised organisations have been created to represent specific parts of the property market. I’ve enjoyed watching CREFC Europe mature into the leading voice of the real estate credit market, acting as a focal point to bring together an often disparate universe of lenders to address the challenges the sector faces, foster education and create a basis for professional interaction.” – Peter Denton, Starwood Capital Europe Advisers, LLP
