EB-5 investments are a valuable funding strategy for many projects, but without the right expertise, even setting up the initial escrow can seem complex.
EB-5 escrows are highly specialized transactions: a successful project must establish investor confidence, meet USCIS guidelines, comply with Homeland Security and SEC regulations, coordinate with immigration attorneys and investor agents, and meet their bank’s compliance requirements.
The escrow itself must be able to accept funds from multiple investors and multiple countries, requiring the creation and management of a variety of sub-accounts. Additionally, the Regional Center must comply with both domestic and international securities laws and maintain the necessary documentation for I-526 and I-829 approval. However, an EB-5 escrow solution tailored to meet the needs of investments can simplify the process greatly.
Though using an escrow for EB-5 is not required, as a best practice across the industry, it has become a benchmark sought by many investors.
