Insider Insights Series: Navigating a New Era in Opportunity Zones
A free webinar recording by JTC Americas
Recorded Wednesday, June 17, 2020 | 11:00 A.M. PT/ 2:00 P.M. ET
Opportunity Zones will bring crucial economic stimulus, job creation and Main Street revitalization to distressed communities around the country. Are you on board?
Despite the economic downturn, OZ charges ahead, with more than $10 billion now invested in QOFs across the country. Given the huge amount of capital gains generated in the recent market selloff, evolving legislation in the wake of the pandemic, and a growing emphasis on social and community impact among investors, we expect this momentum to continue.
In fact, we believe the Opportunity Zones initiative will be a key driver of economic stimulus, job creation and equitable recovery in the months ahead. The nationwide outbreak of COVID-19 has disproportionally hurt low-income communities, and OZ will help ensure the post-pandemic recovery supports distressed areas — exactly as its authors intended.
Watch this free webinar recording, in which our panel of industry experts — including Urban Catalyst and Four Points Funding, 2 of the top 10 companies from the Forbes OZ 20 List — will discuss the state of the market, the role of Opportunity Zones going forward, and why OZ leaders are uniquely positioned to be agents of the economic recovery.
Here’s what we discuss:
- Regulatory changes: Proposed pandemic-related legislation, IRS deadline extensions, and the impact on OZ rules and timelines
- Understanding what the new class of “impact investors” is looking for
- OZ as a platform for equitable recovery, from four perspectives:
- An urban QOF
- A rural QOF
- A service provider
- An economic authority
- OZ market data through the second quarter of 2020 (and emerging trends)
