NES Financial, the financial administrator which was acquired by JTC earlier this year, will be hosting a digital webinar entitled ‘Navigating a New Era in Opportunity Zones’ on 17 June.
The company will be presenting alongside Rachel Reilly – Director of Impact Strategy at Economic Innovation Group, Chris Montgomery – Partner of Four Points Funding, Emilio Miguel – Regional Head of Americas, Private Client Services at JTC and Erik Hayden – Founder of Urban Catalyst. It will be moderated by Reid Thomas, Chief Revenue Officer and Managing Director at NES Financial.
An Opportunity Zone is an economically-distressed community where private investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for capital gain tax incentives in the United States. They were enacted in 2017 to help incentivise economic development and growth in communities previously overlooked by investors.
Commenting on the upcoming webinar, Emilio Miguel, JTC said:
“It’s a crucial time now to focus on Opportunity Zones, when a worldwide pandemic has made them more in need of investment than ever before. Equally, investors can look to strengthen and diversify their own portfolios by channelling capital into these communities.”
“At JTC we believe that we are stronger together, and the Opportunity Zones initiative is a good example of using investment for good, for bettering previously economically-undervalued areas in a sensitive and innovative way.”
