    Impact Capital Forum's Opportunity Zones Working Group

    Showcasing Catalyzers leading OZ Funds

    This event is the third gathering of ICF's working group about Opportunity Zones. The US Treasury has just announced a second round of proposed regulations for Opportunity Zone investing. The working group's members will discuss points of clarification and opportunities that can optimize their Opportunity Zones investment activity. This Working Group session will showcase catalyzers who are putting the Regulations into action. 

    Jeremy Keele, Managing Partner, Catalyst Opportunity Funds

    Christina Hollenback and Marcus Glover, Founders, M. Glover Capital

    The working group is open to new members. It is relevant to those investing in Opportunity Zones - or supporting such investment - including foundations, financial institutions, impact investing intermediaries, fund managers, investors, attorneys, advisors, and real estate developers. 

    What are Opportunity Zones?

    Opportunity Zones have emerged as a transformative economic development tool, providing a new incentive to place much-needed capital into distressed communities. Opportunity Zones also offer investors opportunities to defer and/or reduce their tax liabilities when committing capital within designated areas. A helpful guide to Opportunity Zone investing is here.


    Orrick - 51 W 52nd St, New York, NY 10019.

    Breakfast will be served.

    The event is co-sponsored by Impact Capital Forum and Orrick, a law firm and leading advisor in the Technology, Energy & Infrastructure, and Financial sectors globally.

    • Santander Building, 45 E 53rd St, NYC

    The rise of China and its outbound investment has had a profound impact on the world of development finance. For example, China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), - an ambitious effort to improve regional cooperation and connectivity on a trans-continental scale - aims to strengthen infrastructure, trade, and investment links between China and some 65 other countries. These countries collectively account for over 30% of global GDP, 62% of population, and 75% of known energy reserves.

    Join us for a discussion of its implications for the developing world and how other state and non-state actors are responding to its opportunities and challenges.

    Featured Speaker:

    Dr. Joshua Eisenman.  Dr. Eisenman is senior fellow for China studies at the American Foreign Policy Council (AFPC) in Washington, DC and assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin’s Lyndon Baines Johnson School of Public Affairs. His most recent book is China Steps Out: Beijing's Major Power Engagement with the Developing World (Routledge, 2018).

    Additional speaker to be announced.


    Devin T. Stewart, Senior Fellow, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.


    Santander Building - 45 E 53rd St, New York, NY 10022
