The Opportunity Zones program provides an incredible opportunity to create tax free upside after a 10 year hold. The program definitely encourages long term investment thinking and entrepreneurialism. But how do you incorporate it for your own investment portfolio, especially if you’re not a ultra high net worth individual? In this podcast, Gerry Reihsen from the Coasis Coalition takes you through the whole process showing how any “common person” can take advantage of the Opportunity Zones marketplace, even with as little as 5-10K of capital gains through what he calls “Captive Opportunity Zone Investment Vehicles”.

Listen to “How to Incorporate Opportunity Zones into your Investment Portfolio” on Spreaker.

If you haven’t done so already, pause this podcast and get a pen and paper. You’ll definitely want to take notes regarding the information you’ll receive on this podcast episode. Understanding the points Mr. Reihsen made could be the difference between generational wealth and saying what if! It’s that important!

You’ll learn the basic structure and components of Captive Opportunity Zone investment vehicles, the process on how they are created, the flexibility inherent in the program, and all the nuances and benefits they provide, estate planning issues as well as the best part of all: how to continue to build wealth from within the vehicle to exit tax free!
