Opportunity Zones provide an incentive for investors to reinvest unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds in exchange for a temporary tax deferral on portions of the initial investment; as well as excluding capital gains taxes on Opportunity Fund investments held for at least 10 years.
 
Speakers will be Kevin Boes, president and CEO of the New Markets Support Company (A LISC affiliate) and Brian Forcier of Titanium Partners.
