What are the rules for short-term investments in funds not related to the NCE or JCE?
If a project has received the full amount of investor funds, but has not yet put those monies into the EB-5 project, is it allowable to put the investor money into a short-term (e.g. 18 or 24 month) investment vehicle so that the regional center can earn some operational cash while waiting for project approvals? How much leeway does the regional center have to try and create a return on investor cash while waiting for governmental or project approvals? If none, isn't that tantamount to a loss (due to inflation)? But if it's unrestricted, doesn't this allow a regional center to essentially gamble with investor money on something that has nothing to do with the agreed-upon project?
