Last year’s tax reform created massive incentives for holders of unrealized capital gains to put their money into so-called “Opportunity Zones” (OZs) — economically distressed census tracts across the US. The Opportunity Zone program is likely to grow into a huge source of development funding over the coming years. The question is: How can your business benefit?

Join us for this free webinar, in which a panel of industry experts will discuss how OZ investment may align with the funding needs of EB-5 development projects. Topics to be covered:

  • An introduction to Opportunity Zones
  • Requirements to set up an OZ Fund
  • Overlap of EB-5 Targeted Employment Areas and Opportunity Zones
  • Modifying EB-5 projects to welcome OZ investment
  • and more…
