San Jose, CA, April 11, 2012– NES Financial, the nation’s leading provider of escrow administration technology and services to the EB-5 industry, announced that Green Card Fund, LLC has implemented the company’s EB-5 Escrow Administration Solution to administer funds associated with the EB-5 Regional Center’s Odyssey Preparatory Academy Charter School project in Casa Grande, Arizona.

When searching for an escrow solution, Green Card Fund, LLC saw value in NES Financial’s multifaceted solution.

Green Card Fund, LLC came to NES Financial for a solution that would streamline their escrow processes, reduce costs and improve operational efficiency.
