On Feb. 14 & 15 more than 400 investors and business professionals will be meeting at El San Juan Hotel in Isla Verde to learn about tax incentives, competitive advantages and opportunities that make Puerto Rico a unique destination.

The Puerto Rico Investment Summit brings new topics to its program, such as Opportunity Zones, the Gilti Tax (global intangible low-taxed income) and, for the first time, a half-day Financial Services Forum, which focuses on financial- and insurance-specific content that includes the International Insurance Center and International Financial Entities (IFEs).

The second day of the conference includes panels, power talks, workshops and campfires, plus two networking events to provide attendees the opportunity to meet industry leaders and government officials.

Attendees will benefit from panels, interviews and networking sessions and will enjoy two days of learning and discovering the latest regarding tax incentives such as Acts 20, 22, 73, 273 and 399 and Real Estate & Tourism, among others. Other topics will cover international banking, life insurance, captive insurance and management.

Participants in the summit’s sixth edition include key speakers and government officials, such as Manuel Laboy, secretary of the Economic Development & Commerce Department, and Ella Woger, chief operating officer of Invest P.R. Other speakers include early adopters Nicholas Prouty, CEO of Putnam Bridge; Margaret Anadu, partner at Goldman Sachs; Edgar Ríos from PMA Law, one of the island’s leading tax law firms; Gaby Hernández of BDO P.R.; Jeff Carmichael, CEO of Yingke Caribbean Center; Walter Keenan of Advantage Insurance; and Manuel López-Zambrana of DLA Piper.

Created in 2013, the PRIS is the perfect platform at which to present potential investors with competitive advantages to develop and grow their businesses, while also creating much-needed jobs and helping boost the local economy. The event is aimed at investors, multinational CEOs, businessowners, tax lawyers, insurance professionals and financial experts.
