WHY doesn't the regional center program work so well for EB-5 visa investors? What is the faster and easier route to getting a green card?
The recent spate of revelations about the widespread fraud in the regional center program clearly proves that it is an act of immense stupidity to invest in a regional center, because even today, regional center CEO's and CFO's usually engage in conflict of interest and securities fraud, and proof of that fact is that regional center CEO's and CFO's will refuse to give a written guarantee that they have disclosed all material facts to EB-5 visa investors and also refuse to give a written guarantee of zero conflict of interest. In the US, a failure to disclose material facts to an investor is called securities fraud.
My business philosophy is very simple and in direct contrast to my competitors: My competitors ask, "What can EB-5 visa investors do to help us and our cronies get rich?", while I ask, "How can I help EB-5 visa investors get their green cards safely, quickly and (hopefully) profitably?"
First and foremost, we offer our EB-5 visa investor clients a written guarantee of full disclosure of material facts and zero conflict of interest, while regional center CEO's will usually refuse to offer these guarantees, as they usually violate securities laws and engage in conflict of interest too.
Second, unlike regional center executives and attorneys who market regional centers, we don't engage in conflict of interest, as we usually represent only ONE party at a time.
EB-5 visa seekers should remember that Genuine Direct Investment businesses are THE BEST option to get the EB-5 visa quickly, safely and usually profitably for the following reasons:
1. Faster processing and approval times.
2. Easy exit strategy, which means that the risk of capital loss is very low while capital loss is quite common in most regional centres.
3. Investors usually get a much higher Return on Investment.
4. Investors usually get a Capital gain, whereas regional center investors usually get capital losses and almost never get capital gains.
5. Our clients have peace of mind, while those who choose regional centers or other partnerships don't.
6. Our clients have very little risk as we conduct extensive due diligence and work hard to prevent fraud and conflict of interest, whereas regional centers and partnerships are overrun with fraud and conflict of interest. Not a single regional centre CEO will give a written guarantee of zero fraud and zero conflict of interest.
7. Full control of business and capital, which helps prevent fraud, conflict of interest and losses.
EB-5 visa investors need to remember that we offer THE BEST service when it comes to offering a turnkey solution for the following reasons:
1. Our clients ALWAYS have full control of their business and their money. Those who choose regional centers and partnerships usually have to kiss their money goodbye, and are STUCK for 5-9 years.
2. We offer a written guarantee of freedom from fraud and conflict of interest, whereas our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee.
3. We offer a written guarantee of FULL disclosure of material facts on an ongoing basis, whereas our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee.
4. We offer a written guarantee of full fee refund in case a client is rejected due to our team's fault, while our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee because they are incompetent cowards who are unsure about the quality of their work.
5. Since 2004, our clients have NEVER been denied due to our fault at the I-526 and I-829 stage, and have NEVER suffered operating or capital losses, and have usually earned over 12% annual Return on Equity because of our focus on due diligence and our extensive efforts to reduce risk by preventing fraud and conflict of interest. Try finding a regional center or partnership that boasts of this record.
6. We are quite objective in our assessments, and owe a fiduciary duty to our EB-5 visa investor clients, while those who sell regional center and partnership securities usually do not owe fiduciary duties to EB-5 visa investors. In plain words, we are required by law to put our clients interests first, and we do so because it helps us more than it helps our clients! We advise our clients diligently and help them make solid decisions.
7. We are probably the ONLY firm that actually encourages our clients to always stay in full control of their business and their funds at every stage as this helps us avoid escrow accounting and reduces potential for fraud, embezzlement and litigation.
If you're an EB-5 visa investor who wants to get their green card quickly, safely and in a usually profitable manner, please contact us. You'll be glad you did!
