JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group® and EB-5 Finance Group™ are pleased to announce the publication of The Developer’s EB-5 Handbook for EB-5 Construction Financing, a “must-read” resource for developers who are considering using EB-5 financing to complete or enhance their capital stack for construction projects . This is the much talked-about and often (inappropriately) maligned EB-5 program, also known as the immigrant investment visa program.
While there are many pending developments that could affect the EB-5 program, this is still a good time to learn how the program works and why so many developers have used EB-5 financing as part of the capital stack for their new projects. The Global Hospitality Group has developed an approach to guide clients through the EB-5 process with a minimal amount of financial risk to find and evaluate the reliable players and execute financing with a high degree of confidence.
The Developer’s EB-5 Handbook is written to help developers assess the potential opportunities for EB-5 financing while avoiding potential traps for the unwary. Written by legal and business advisors to top developers with great projects in the United States, the Handbook includes articles addressing the following topics:
- What EB-5 is all about? What are its essentials?
- Is EB-5 still viable for developers with everything going on today?
- How can you evaluate an EB-5 construction financing opportunity for your project?
- What is the optimum EB-5 construction financing structure for development projects?
- What drives the size and terms of EB-5 financing in the capital stack?
- How much? How cheap? How certain? How long?
- How can you spot key “show stoppers” before you get too involved?
- What are the most common mistakes developers make with EB-5 financing?
- Who do I need on my EB-5 financing team?
