NES Financial’s technology and expertise will play a critical role in the administration and compliance of these funds.

NES Financial, a JTC Company (LON: JTC), announced today that it has contracted to provide its purpose-built Opportunity Zones Fund Administration Solution to USVI OZ Hemp Fund.

Principal Wally Sullivan and his team at Ozone Capital Markets, in conjunction with affiliated broker dealers, are focused on contributing to the growth of qualified Opportunity Zone projects. Working with local USVI operators, Ozone is helping coordinate a series of industrial-scale funds. These projects all keep to the spirit of OZ objectives, but also represent a significantly different risk/reward profile than typical real estate funds. The local Economic Development Commission (EDC), sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury, offers attractive tax incentive programs for companies to locate there. NES Financial’s technology and expertise will play a critical role in the administration and compliance of these funds.

“The Virgin Islands has 14 designated Opportunity Zones, so the potential benefits to the community are significant,” said Sullivan. “This project will provide jobs and other economic benefits to an area whose tourism industry has been hard hit by both Hurricane Maria and the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The NES Financial Opportunity Zones Fund Administration Solution leverages technology to streamline the complex administrative requirements of OZ fund management, helping funds succeed and helping the Opportunity Zones program do the good it was intended to do. For fund managers and investors, this means a purpose-built solution that embeds security, transparency and regulatory compliance at each step of an OZ investment’s life cycle.
