New York, NY, September 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “The Future of TALF and its Impact on the Commercial Real-estate Market”. This two-hour event is scheduled on March 2, 2010, Tuesday from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.
As a result of the financial crisis credit to all businesses, including property owners, and financial institutions, The Fed created the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility. TALF’s main goal was to help thaw the credit freeze and strengthen the US economy by injecting hundreds of billions into the credit marketing averting what some believe would have been a complete collapse of the US financial system. In order to keep the recovery momentum going, members of congress have signalled that they will extend the program for another year.
This live webcast will focus on one of the hardest hit industries: the $6 trillion commercial real-estate market. Many in this industry feel that TALF is just starting to work and needs to continue in order to completely thaw the market.
The Future of TALF and its Impact on the Commercial Real-estate Market Live Webcast is a must attend event for professionals in the commercial real-estate industry seeking to understand the likely future of TALF and its potential impact on the market. The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of industry experts, key regulators and thought leaders who will help you understand how to navigate these murky waters with an emphasis on best practices moving forward.
