Commercial real-estate asset classes such as office
and industrial buildings, shopping centers, and hotels have no federal guaranty. Yet, since
the early 2000s, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (with their formerly implicit and now
explicit federal guaranty) have dominated multifamily lending, which used to be
dominated by private lenders. Moreover, during that same period, there was an explosion
of multifamily debt, which indicated that the multifamily sector may have been
overleveraged. At this event, industry experts Tom White and Charlie Wilkins will argue
that the federal guaranty should be phased out and will present findings from their
interviews with a host of multifamily and capital-markets experts. To learn more and
