NES Financial offers a series of articles written by industry experts addressing current key issues in the EB-5 industry. This article by Lauren Cohen, Why It’s a Great Time to Consider an EB-5 Direct Investment, provides much-needed perspective and detail on the benefits of considering the option of Direct Investments as an alternative to the EB-5 Regional Center program.
With three temporary extensions within the last fourteen months, the Regional Center program appears to always be facing an uncertain future. Given this uncertainty, investors should be reminded the Direct Investment component is permanent and should be considered as a viable pathway for foreign investors to pursue permanent residency status in the United States.
While a Direct Investment project can be less risky, experience expedited processing times, and yield higher returns for the investor, it is critically important to be aware of potential issues relating to prospective investment opportunities. This includes becoming familiar with the role of experts in the process.
Lauren Cohen addresses key risks and the rewards when selecting EB-5 Direct Investment projects as opposed to investing in the Regional Center program, and provides valuable insight and information, including:
- An overview of the EB-5 Direct Investments option
- Legal requirements for an Direct Investment application
- Benefits of selecting a Direct Investment project
- Options for investors who are not involved with the day-to-day obligations for a business
- The role of experts in due diligence and project development services
