With 94% of Puerto Rico designated as an Opportunity Zone, the 2-day summit will present a complete guide to OZ's and other tax incentives and investment opportunities on the Island.


Opportunity Zones has become the new, hot topic at the Puerto Rico Investment Summit, a premier investment conference known for its comprehensive coverage of the Island's unique tax incentive laws and investment opportunities. Two complete sessions will be dedicated to Opportunity Zones, covering both technical and practical sides, showcasing opportunities on the Island. Experts on this topic, from both U.S. and Puerto Rico, include: Goldman Sachs’ Margaret Chinwe Anadu, DLA Piper tax partner Manuel Lopez Zambrana, Francisco Luis from Kevane Grant Thornton, Guillermo Gomez from Citi, Denisse Flores from PwC, and Fernando Goyco from PMA Law.

The 6th edition of the Puerto Rico Investment Summit, scheduled for February 14 and 15, 2019 in San Juan, will bring together tax experts, government officials, early adopters, innovators, and business leaders to share their experiences and expertise on all the opportunities that Puerto Rico has to offer. From panels to interviews and networking sessions, attendees will enjoy two days of learning and discovering the latest on Opportunity Zones, GILTI (Global Intangible Low-taxed Income), investment opportunities / tax incentives: Acts 20, 22, 73, 273 and 399, Real Estate & Tourism, and China’s Growing Caribbean Footprint. Other topics will cover: International Banking, Life Insurance, Captive Insurance, Management, Tax and Regulatory.

Another novelty on Day-2 (February 15) of PRIS will be the Financial Services Forum, a unique half-day event focused on financial and insurance businesses operating under Puerto Rico’s unique tax incentive programs.

PRIS participants will include over 40 speakers and Government officials, such as: Secretary of Department of Economic Development and Commerce Manuel Laboy, Financial Institutions Commissioner George Joyner, and Ella Woger, Chief Operating Officer of Invest Puerto Rico. Other confirmed speakers are: Bo Williams from Gallatin Funds, GXG CEO Craig Lemasters, Edgar Rios from PMA Law, PRISA Group CEO Friedel Stubbe, Gaby Hernández from BDO Puerto Rico; Jeff Carmichael, CEO of Yingke Caribbean Center, Richard Newton, President and CEO of International Solutions, LLC, and Walter Keenan CEO of Advantage Insurance, among others.
