Corporate CRE lending to AcquisitionsSubscribe
I work within a bank's CRE arm providing traditional corp banking services to large clients (most being publicly-traded REITs). Almost all deals focus on the entity, rather than the asset/portfolio they're acquiring/developing.
I am brand new to the industry and feel that my interests align more closely to underwriting actual properties and would like to make an eventual transition to the buy-side in an acquisitions role (either at a REIT or REPE firm).
Based on this, I was curious if anyone here had any recommendations on what to do if they were in my shoes? I plan on staying with the bank for at least a year or two, but figured it couldn't hurt to start thinking about these things early on.
