Focus: 5 EB5 Countries

The EB5 market overseas has shrunk from 11 to just 5 countries, due to the increase of investment amounts from $500K to $900K. These 5 markets are now the only markets large enough to support just 10 wires per year for most issuers, making them the only realistic choices for issuers of even modest-sized raises. ILW can help you in some of these markets. Call us at 212-545-0818 to find out about these 5 markets, and how we can help you there, or email us at webmaster@ilw.com or online.
