Raising EB-5 Capital for Real Estate

Download Brochure

About The Conference

U.S. real estate has experienced explosive growth in the form of foreign investment over the past few years. Much of that growth has been fueled by the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program, providing permanent-residency to foreign nationals who invest in U.S. businesses or projects that create at least 10 full-time jobs. Since 2008, over $13 billion of foreign direct investment has been deployed into the U.S. economy via the EB-5 program. How can real estate developers, private equity firms, REITs, investors or service providers tap the EB-5 trend and reap the rewards that others have realized? We invite you to learn how by attending iGlobal Forum’s Seminar on Raising EB-5 Capital for Real Estate, to be held on February 24th, 2016 in New York City. The Seminar series will feature 3 separate two-hour seminars to help you decide whether EB-5 financing is right for your projects, what the process entails, and how to capitalize on this growing trend.

  • Overview of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program, who it’s for, and key project players
  • Determining if your project is a good fit for EB-5 financing and is marketable to investors
