Cbus OZ Funds
Chris Knoppe is president of Cbus OZ Funds in Columbus, Ohio, where he invests to improve local urban neighborhoods in a dramatic and meaningful way through concentrated renovation of distressed housing and mixed-use properties. Investing professionally since 2007, Knoppe has successfully navigated market cycles while executing strategies including distressed property acquisition and repositioning, hard money lending, home building, and fund management. He became enamored by the power of Opportunity Zones shortly after the program’s formation, inspiring him to create a fund structure to amass a portfolio of houses, multifamily, and mixed-use properties while harnessing the power of the OZ incentives.
What kind of trends and new investment areas do you think QOFs will focus on in 2022?
Real estate will continue to be a key investment segment including housing and industrial, however, I think we’ll see real estate investment expand into broader geographies and project types. As awareness of the OZ incentives grow, my hope is that more focus is given to hyper-local investment. Similarly, I think crowdfunding strategies will grow to allow broader investor participation.
