Opportunity Zones are well suited for long-term, countercyclical investments, and at the same time can be instrumental in efforts to rebuild the U.S. economy during this webinar.

Specialty financial administrator NES Financial, a JTC Group Company (LON: JTC), announced today that it will host its next Opportunity Zones webinar, Opportunity Zones: An Economic Recovery Solution, with S. Lawrence Davis, President & CEO of Shorewood Real Estate Group, Jim Lang, Shareholder of Greenberg Traurig, Michael Bernier, Partner of Ernst & Young, and David Coelho, Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Investment Officer Opportunity Zone Program of Bridge Investment Group.

The informational webinar is scheduled for Thursday, May 14 at 11 a.m. PT and will be moderated by Reid Thomas, Executive Vice President and General Manager of NES Financial. The event is free and open to public to attend.

“Given the rapid and reactive market selloff, following the longest bull-market in history, significant capital gains have been realized by many without a plan for subsequent reinvestments,” said Thomas, a frequent speaker at events and conferences across the country. “Opportunity Zones are well suited for long-term, countercyclical investments, and at the same time can be instrumental in efforts to rebuild the U.S. economy during this webinar.”

Qualified Opportunity Zones were created by bipartisan Congressional legislation in 2017 to help incentivize economic development and growth in communities previously overlooked by investors. The initiative has grown considerably, with recently released final Treasury regulations and multiple legislative proposals to provide more meaningful reporting.

In addition to discussing economic recovery and social impact, NES Financial will provide key industry insights. To RSVP and attend this webinar, please click here for more details or visit
