Dr. Jim White, Ph.D.
Sometimes, the most interesting Opportunity Zone projects are located in rural, rather than urban areas. In this podcast, best selling author, speaker and CEO, Jim White explains how his PHT Opportunity Fund is investing in agricultural related real estate and businesses including his pre-cooling and cold storage industrial project in Salinas, California – and why he believes Opportunity Zones are one of the noblest initiatives to emerge from Washington in years!
The PHT Opportunity Fund is a Qualified Opportunity Fund that makes strategic investments in QOZ communities. Their team acquires companies, real estate and other assets in a variety of industries providing long-term, sustainable growth to QOZ communities and companies, and their investment projects are designed to deliver competitive returns to investors and stakeholders.
As you’ll learn while listening to the podcast, Mr. White knows how to structure deals and is no stranger to opening successful businesses. And despite coronavirus, he sees a great future for both the Opportunity Zones industry in general and for his latest project which is the focus of the PHT Fund as shown in the video below:
