Cloud-based technology platform delivers operational efficiency and competitive advantage to the Florida-based EB-5 Regional Center

San Jose, CA, May 8, 2012– NES Financial, the nation’s leading provider of escrow administration technology and services to the EB-5 industry, announced that Florida Regional Center has selected the company’s cloud-based EB-5 Escrow Administration Solution to administer investor funds associated with the Regional Center’s Harbourside Place and Water Point projects in Jupiter, Florida.

Florida Regional Center required a technology-based solution that would streamline escrow processes, enable online archiving of key documentation, and generate comprehensive reports.

Florida Regional Center’s Harbourside Place project will consist of retail stores, restaurants, offices, hotels and marina slips, and is expected to create 2,400 jobs over the next three years in the Targeted Employment Area (TEA)—a rural area or an area experiencing unemployment of at least 150 percent of the national average rate. Meanwhile, the Regional Center’s Water Point project will be developed into 4.21 acre project comprised of apartments, golf villas, retail stores, and restaurants along the Jupiter Riverwalk, and is expected to create 250 jobs in the area.

During the investor’s I-526 application process, EB-5 Regional Centers work with NES Financial to place investors’ deposits into escrow accounts pending the approval by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
