In the past few years the EB-5 program has exploded, becoming a popular source of capital to supplement traditional fund raising. The complex regulatory environment surrounding the EB-5 program requires specialized knowledge to advise clients while staying in compliance with various regulatory bodies. This program is designed to give an overview of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program and help practitioners advise their developer clients how to lawfully obtain EB-5 Capital for real estate projects.
