SAN JUAN – The 5th edition of the Puerto Rico Investment Summit (PRIS) will be held Oct. 9 and 10, at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan. The event is billed by its organizers as the “Caribbean’s premier investor’s conference” and the best opportunity to learn about the island’s tax incentives program and other alternative investment vehicles, as well as its competitive advantages.

The two-day event will feature presentations on the technical and practical aspects of the incentives laws, including Act 20 for export services, Act 22 for new residents, Act 273 – international banking center and Act 399 – international insurance center, among others.

The event showcases leading investors, law and accounting firms, financial institutions, and multi-national companies that do business in Puerto Rico. The confirmed speakers include Nicholas Prouty, CEO of Putnam Bridge Funding; Rich Cooper from Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton; Gabriel Hernández, partner at BDO; Walter Keenan, CEO of Advantage Insurance Holdings; Mark Leeds, partner at Mayer Brown; Frank Holder, managing director at Berkeley Research Group; and Puerto Rico Tourism Director José Izquierdo.

“Even though Puerto Rico has filed for Title III under Promesa [Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act], if you are an investor, a multi-national company or an entrepreneur looking for opportunities, Puerto Rico is a great option, not only for its taxes—it has the human resources, it’s under the U.S. legal and financial systems, and has a privileged location,” Brenda González-Santini, president of the 2017 PRIS, says in a published announcement.

The private event to which more than 2,000 people have attended in the past four editions, featured presentations by more than 100 public and private companies.
