Angel Syndicate

The Four Points website, as well as our day to day, is focused on our Opportunity Zone funds and investments. We are convinced that continuing to build our angel syndicate, West Slope Angels, is an essential piece to be successful with our OZ plan.

The unparalleled quality of life on the West Slope has drawn an enormous base of financial and intellectual capital to the region, which is the driving force for our OZ investments. While we are ubiquitously visiting communities to understand where to invest, we also meet a large amount of high quality companies and founders deserving of investment.

By investing in about 4 companies per year, we better understand the communities in which we invest and can reduce risk by playing a part in creating the jobs that will propel these communities. West Slope Angels provides significant seed round investments via our very active and ever-growing syndicate of angel investors.

West Slope Angels investments are deal by deal and are open to members of our syndicate. We do not operate a venture fund and there are no OZ investments in these companies from Four Points. To learn more about West Slope Angels, the portfolio of company investments, and how to be involved, please visit the West Slope Angels website.

How it works

icon-advantage
1. Realize and Invest Cap Gains

Investors have 180 days after realizing capital gains to invest it in an Opportunity Zone fund. Both the gain and the associated tax are invested in to the fund. Capital gains of any kind, including gains from stock or real estate, can be invested. Unlike 1031 exchanges, only gains are invested, allowing investors to extract their original basis. If the capital gain came from a partnership, the investor has until the end of the calendar year and 180 days into the following year to invest.

2. Defer Taxes

By investing their capital gains, investors get to defer their capital gain taxes realized today until 2026. This enables the investment of taxes that would have otherwise been paid to the government.

3. Reduce Taxes

If the capital gains are left in an Opportunity Zone fund for 5 years, a 10% step up in basis is applied (tooltip on step up in basis: a step-up in basis readjusts the value of an appreciated asset, providing a new cost-basis and lowering the tax liability), which equates to a 10% reduction in taxes. After the capital gains are invested for 7 years, an additional 5% step up is basis is applied, totalling in a 15% basis step up. With 2026 being the year tax is owed, 2019 is the last year to be invested for 7 years in an Opportunity Zone fund and receive a 15% basis step up. 2021 is the last year to receive a 10% basis step up.

4. Eliminate Taxes

After 10 years of being invested, all appreciation made within the opportunity zone investment can be realized tax free. That’s 100% forgiveness of taxes for gains made in the OZ, resulting in a large boost (projected around 30%) to returns.

All Four Points funds have a 10 year hold requirement, which realizes all Opportunity Zone tax benefits.
