Sortis Opportunity Zone Fund

(Closed to new investment)

Sortis Holdings sponsors and manages the Sortis Opportunity Zone Fund I, a Tax Reduction Fund for investors to take advantage of one of the best capital gains tax reduction programs of a generation. Created through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December 2017, opportunity zone investment funds offer investors the ability to invest realized capital gains into real estate projects and businesses in qualified geographical areas. Following our successful private lending fund footprint, Sortis invests in the Western US with a focus on the Northwest.

How does Opportunity Zone Fund investing work?

An investor who has realized a capital gain by selling an asset like stocks or real estate can receive special tax benefits if they reinvest that gain into an Opportunity Fund within 180 days. There are three primary advantages to rolling over a capital gain into a qualified Opportunity Zone Fund:

1. Defer

the payment of your capital gains until December 31, 2028.

2. Reduce

Effective January 1 the benefit drops to 10% after 5 years.

3. Pay Zero

tax on gains earned from the Opportunity Zone Fund.

Real Estate Trends
It is easy to be a follower of real estate trends, but we pride ourselves on being a first-mover when we identify opportunities.  Trends are not hard to identify, but taking advantage of them is the art.  We are focused on how technology is disrupting real estate, especially retail, multifamily, hospitality and healthcare/life sciences.  One thing is certain regardless of real estate cycles, we will continue to see progress in technology.  This will continue to evolve the real estate markets at an increasing pace creating opportunity for those who are well-positioned.  We intend to put ourselves ahead of the coming wave.

Mixed Use
By pairing a creative mix of synergistic uses that combine two or more of our focus strategies, we can create outsize returns that may not exist in a stand-alone project. You will see several examples of that in our pipeline that play into market trends for mixed use development in urban areas creating outsized returns from the synergies.
