Our mission is to connect investors to EB-5 issuers of carefully evaluated projects.
Investors, we speak with, aim to immigrate to the United States while making a meaningful financial contribution, typically in the form of a real estate investment.
EB-5 issuers, we speak with, are typically real estate developers, looking into EB-5 as an alternate funding method for their projects.
While no investment comes with zero risk, our professionals carefully evaluate both the investment projects and the qualifications of prospective investors.
