Part 1 – The Opportunity Zone program requires all investments to be directed through an investment vehicle called a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF).
In practice, this means that an investor can’t invest directly into an Opportunity Zone property or business but must instead invest into a Qualified Opportunity Fund and the fund can then reinvest into a property or business.
Investors can set up their own fund(s) or invest in a third party’s fund.
To help you set up and launch your own fund here’s a video recording of the April 23, 2019 Opportunity Zones Meetup presented by Karl Dakin with Dakin Capital.
The recording is broken down into four parts and this is Part 1.
In Part 1, participants are welcomed to the event and background information is shared on the Meetup, its purpose and available resources. If you’ve attended a previous Meetup you should skip ahead to Part 2.
