Opportunity Zone Program Regulation Update

The Qualified Opportunity Zone Program (“QOZ Program”) final regulations were released on December 19, 2019 by the U.S. Treasury Department, and the IRS has provided additional relief for qualified opportunity funds (“QOFs”) and their investors in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Notice 2021-10 (“Notice 2021-10”) on January 19, 2021.

As a result, investors now have additional flexibility for certain capital gains realized in 2019 or 2020 that may be eligible for an investment in the QOZ Program until March 31, 2021.

Cyclical Outlook – Post Peak
Markets appear priced for a benign economic outcome that would be a historical rarity given current conditions. Higher bond yields offer resilience amid increasing risks to the global economy.

Our September Cyclical Forum was the first to be held in London, where the economic situation today reflects what’s happening around the world. The Bank of England (BOE) is nearing the end of a long journey to raise interest rates. This tightening of monetary policy has fueled increased volatility in U.K. financial markets, and there are concerns that the British economy could soon stall or slip into a recession. Similar scenarios are playing out globally as countries continue their efforts to quell the post-pandemic inflationary spike.

Central banks are reaching the end of their tightening cycles on different schedules and with different peak policy rates in sight.

All Value Tilted 2021 Q4
Active Tax Indexing is the process of identifying investment losses in a client’s taxable investment portfolio and selling those securities to recognize the loss.

Those capital losses are utilized to offset gains. This harvesting technique is designed to reduce taxes and improve after-tax returns (i.e.create “tax alpha”). Our approach customizes the portfolio to meet the need(s) of the individual client.
