Opportunity Zones: Potential for Transformation? | March 29, 2018

Transform Finance Investor Network Webinar Recordings show

Summary: Within the massive 2017 tax bill, impact investors are taking notice of a comparatively small new provision. Opportunity Zones provide a new tax benefit for investors in low income communities, but will it also benefit residents of those communities? The provision has raised hopes for some but has others remaining cautious over the new law. Click here to read about Opportunity Zones through a collection of resources. In this webinar, Fran Seegull and John Cochrane of the U.S. Impact Investing Alliance discuss how the new benefit looks to incentivize capital, the types of business and projects it might promote, and how impact investors can shape this new market for community investment.
