Webinar: “How can EB-5 issuers make the most of the Opportunity Zone program?”

JMBM’s Investment Capital Law Group is pleased to announce that Catherine DeBono Holmes, Chair of the Group, will participate as a panelist during the webinar, “How can EB-5 issuers make the most of the Opportunity Zone program?” sponsored by NES Financial.

Last year’s tax reform created massive incentives for holders of unrealized capital gains to put their money into “Opportunity Zones” (OZs) — economically distressed census tracts across the US. The list of Opportunity Zones was finalized in June 2018, with 8,700 census tracks designated – 11% of the country.

The Opportunity Zone program is likely to grow into a sizeable source of development funding over the coming years. The total available market is estimated around $6 trillion. The question is: How can your business benefit?

The webinar will be of interest to regional center operators, issuers and project managers, immigration and securities attorneys, and economists and business consultants.

Date: Thursday, September 20, 2018
Time: 11:00 AM PT (2:00 PM ET)
