Jackie Bowie and Amol Dhargalkar discuss higher-for-longer interest rates in the Real Estate Capital USA

October 6, 2023


Real Estate Capital USA covers Chatham's Semiannual Market and Economic Update webinar, hosted by Jackie Bowie and Amol Dhargalkar. They outline how higher-for-longer interest rates will impact the global economy across markets and sectors.

Rising interest rates and alternative sources of capital have investors bracing for a different market. Borrowers are turning to alternative sources of capital — such as short-term bridge loans — in hopes of buying more time to execute a business plan or wait until rates are lower than they are today.

“We’re finding that borrowers are having to learn new ways to navigate the markets to try and understand how to best tap into this private debt market and how the structures work because it’s very different from what they’ve seen from their traditional relationship bank.”

While many believe the Federal Reserve is closing in on the end of the rate hiking cycle, no one truly knows when these increases will end. The question remains — how much do you believe in the Fed?

“I think a lot of people are very confident that there’s a recession coming, and this indicator [two-year Treasury] is excellent at telling you that a recession is coming, it’s less excellent at saying when that recession is coming though.”
