As experienced developers begin to incorporate EB-5 capital as a component of their financing strategy, they must pay attention to risk – legal, financial and reputational – and exert considerable effort to mitigate it. While the EB-5 program is steeped in immigration law, an understanding of securities, tax and other corporate law is critical.

Prudent and judicious developers seek a Regional Center partner that they know and trust. Management must understand the developer’s business in order to underwrite their projects appropriately and effectively. The operators of the EB-5 Regional Center must be familiar with – and committed to – strict regulatory compliance.

AscendAmerica EB-5 Regional Center was built on the principles of steadfast compliance and integrity, recognizing that in today’s business and regulatory environment, those are the fundamental keys to success.
