Maxey and Wolff will participate on a panel focused on bringing allocators, investors and developers together to facilitate opportunity zone investments. The panelists have expertise in a wide range of areas including real estate development, tax, legal, financial planning and investing.
“We’ve been closely following Opportunity Zone investments as a potential investment strategy for clients of Wealthspire Advisors,” said Maxey. “As evidenced by the wide range of industries and experts involved at this event, there are several nuances and complexities to Opportunity Zones that we—and our clients—need to thoroughly consider in determining investment suitability based on the clients’ long-term investment goals.”
“We look forward to lending our perspectives and learning from the other panelists at what should be an interesting and educational event,” added Wolff.
