IMN: Opportunity Zones Forum (Midwest) 2019

IMN Opportunity Zones Forum (Midwest)

We are excited to announce we will be sponsoring the upcoming IMN Opportunity Zones Forum (Midwest) in Chicago, Illinois, September 19, 2019.

“This one-day conference will dive into real-life applications of the community development tool established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Attendees will learn how their peers are executing long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide.”

Since their inception, Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZs) have drummed up a host of questions about how the program will work and how commercial real estate developers, fund managers, family offices, wealth managers and their legal and tax advisers can tap into these new tax-advantaged opportunities.
Chaz Guinn, the President of Revolve Capital Group, will be discussing Accessing Creative Financing to Close Deals Outside of Primary Markets at 4:10pm. To view the agenda please CLICK HERE.

Chaz Guinn will be discussing Accessing Creative Financing to Close Deals Outside of Primary Markets.

“Chaz Guinn is the President and Managing Director of Revolve Capital Group “Revolve”. Chaz, specializes in 1st lien NPL/RPL whole loan trading, and has built a track record of structuring, negotiating, and executing some of the largest trades in the lower-valued market segment.

Over the past decade, Chaz established whole loan trading desks for two large private equity firms in the U.S. that managed well over a billion dollars in delinquent loans. Chaz has been focused on building lasting relationships with Wall Street, Investment Banks, GSE’s, large real estate funds, qualified national vendors and servicers to allow Revolve Capital Group to become a household name.

Chaz and his partners decided to form Revolve Capital Group, whose primary objective is to be a market leader in the lower-valued asset-class and provide solutions to both the banking sector, distressed homeowners, private investors, and local communities that have been affected by the financial downturn in the housing market. Our focus is centered on loans secured by properties with market values of less than $150,000.

Chaz is positioning Revolve to be one of the largest private real estate groups acquiring non-performing/re-performing debt. Combining his education in Finance and Economics with the practical management of supply and demand, Revolve made a conscious strategy to allow other private investors, real estate funds, family offices, and non-profit organizations to participate in this recovery as well.”
