In regard to a direct EB-5 investment the personal funds of the investor has to be committed and used at risk. There are no redemption agreements to guarantee the return of the principal amount of the investment. The funds are used for as an example operation costs, furniture, equipment, and other essential services to form the foundation for U.S. job creation
Those types of businesses can spend money on payroll, supplies, overhead, marketing, etc. An “at risk” investment means there is no guaranteed return of the invested funds, but that the funds will be used to start and operate the business (and, of course, create 10 jobs). Retaining qualified EB-5 counsel, like our law firm, can assist you with approvable legal and financial infrastructures.
