This solution from NES Financial and Mark Edward Partners appears to me to resolve one of the biggest challenges faced by EB-5 issuers, while providing insurance to protect the EB-5 investor.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2015
NES Financial, the leading provider of EB-5 administration solutions, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Mark Edward Partners, a leading provider of innovative insurance solutions, to provide the EB-5 industry with a unique early-release escrow solution.
This new solution offers qualifying EB-5 projects the ability to release funds from escrow prior to I-526 approval without subjecting the investors to additional risk. By aligning the innovative insurance product from Mark Edward Partners with NES Financial’s Intelligent EB-5 Suite of solutions, EB-5 issuers and investors enjoy the highest levels of security, transparency, and compliance.
“Mark Edward Partners has consistently established itself as a firm with the expertise and experience to develop and bring innovative insurance solutions to the market,” said Mark E. Freitas, President and CEO of Mark Edward Partners. “NES Financial is the leading innovator in developing and delivering technology-based administration solutions to the EB-5 market. By us working together to deliver a comprehensive solution, EB-5 issuers will be able to accelerate project deployment without introducing additional risk.”
“With the explosive growth in the EB-5 industry, the unpredictable and lengthy I-526 petition processing times make it extremely difficult for developers to plan their development schedules,” said Bruce Rosetto of Greenberg Traurig. “This solution from NES Financial and Mark Edward Partners appears to me to resolve one of the biggest challenges faced by EB-5 issuers, while providing insurance to protect the EB-5 investor.”
With the insurance product, which is underwritten by ANV/Lloyds of London, one of the most recognized and largest insurance carriers in the world, both issuers and investors will greatly benefit from this comprehensive solution. With insurance and an escrow simultaneously being offered on a single project, not only do the investors have full protection, but issuers can also get the funds released soon enough to put them to work on the project.
“Over the last two years, we have understandably seen a dramatic increase in demand for early-release escrows.” said Reid Thomas, NES Financial Executive Vice President. “We began looking for an insurance solution that would meet the timing requirements of developers without introducing additional risk to investors and our bank partners. The solution developed by Mark Edward Partners in combination with our Intelligent EB-5 Escrow Solution is the ideal fit for qualified projects.”
