Welcome  to the OZ Funds Investors Conference

The combination of Opportunity Zone Funds with other local tax incentives in Puerto Rico, offers investors a unique investment opportunity. 

We invite you join us at our investors conference. Among the topics we will be discussing are accounting, legal and key central aspects of OZ funds. We will also discuss real estate opportunities, export services and insights from OZ fund managers. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.

Since the announcement of the Opportunity Zones Funds, there has been great buzz in the investment community. Puerto Rico presents unique opportunities as a result of a 94.5% zone designation. This event is an opportunity to educate, explore and discuss the possibilities of using such tax incentive as a powerful economic driver for the island’s economic recovery.
