EB-5 2.0

Kevin Wright & Michael Fitzpatrick

Since 1990, the Immigration Investor Visa Program (EB-5) has enabled American real estate developers raising capital for projects from foreign investors seeking to relocate to the United States. In recent years, however, lack of clear regulations, failure to extend legislation, and shortage of visas has made the landscape difficult, especially for Chinese investors, sending the EB-5 industry globally to alternative markets. Fortunately, there is an essential, up-to-date handbook to guide stakeholders through the changes in the EB-5 process.

EB-5 2.0 | The Institutionalization of EB-5 explores the state of the industry today and how to overcome obstacles that may arise from proposed legislative alterations. Additionally, it provides powerful strategies in emerging investor markets such as India, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Comprehensive, informative, and invaluable, this is a must-read for anyone hoping to benefit from this important government program.
