Webinar Recap: How to Exit the Stock Market Roller Coaster
by Erik Hayden, on Oct 8, 2020 11:19:35 AM
It’s no secret that the current state of the stock market is volatile. That’s why our most recent webinar focused on why many stock investors are diversifying their portfolio into real estate and reducing taxes through Opportunity Zone funds.
Together with Morgan Mackles (Urban Catalyst’s EVP of Investor Relations), we examined the advantages of diversifying into commercial real estate, particularly in Opportunity Zones, and why now is the time to do so.
Watch the full webinar recording, or reference these key takeaways from the discussion:
- Nearly 70% of Urban Catalyst investors had a capital gains event that was the sale of stock. Many of these gains were from the sale of tech stocks from companies like Apple, Facebook, Google, Tesla, Zoom and more. Many investors shared with us that they are hesitant about market volatility and want to avoid paying hefty taxes. That’s why they’ve diversified into the Urban Catalyst Opportunity Zone Fund.
- On this note, our stock investors come from a variety of backgrounds. Whether they’re looking to sell shares of IPO or employee stock, or come from the acquisition world, they see the potential of investing in an Opportunity Zone Fund. It’s a win-win scenario from both an investor and markets standpoint.
- Transitioning into investing in commercial real estate through an Opportunity Zone Fund portfolio affords investors three potential tax advantages: defer capital gains taxes for six years, reduce the amount of capital gains taxes you owe, and receive tax-free profits from the fund itself after 10 years.
We’re committed to revitalizing downtown San Jose. Urban Catalyst further offers investors a unique diversification opportunity in real estate spanning various property types such as office, multifamily, retail, senior housing and a hotel.
Our fundraising ends on Dec. 30, 2020.
