The May 2019 Investment Planning Knowledge Circle presentation will be held on Wednesday, May 22nd at 3 pm ET.
Guest speakers Kerry Scanlon, Terry Anderson and Todd Blanding of Platform Ventures, will be presenting, "Understanding Qualified Opportunity Funds and 1031 Exchanges."
As investors, especially boomers, begin to divest their personal businesses, stock gains and real assets, they may require tax-efficient exit plans and funding options. The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and existing Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code potentially create opportunities for investors to do just that. Join us for this in-depth, educational presentation that will cover:
- Investing in Qualified Opportunity Funds & 1031 Exchange Funds
- Understanding Benefits and Risks of These Investment Solutions
- Benefits, Risks, Restrictions and Growth Opportunities
- Asset Allocation and Portfolio Construction Considerations
