San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
NES Financial announced today that it has been selected by Florida Equity and Growth Fund Regional Center to provide its leading EB-5 Escrow Administration Solution on the Regional Center’s current development in Tampa, FL.
The EB-5 visa program, created in 1990, encourages investment into projects that stimulate U.S. job growth, while providing an opportunity for foreign nationals to become lawful permanent residents. While relatively obscure in early decades, recent years have seen exponential growth in the use of this capital in projects of all types and sizes. Commercial real estate developers in particular have gravitated strongly toward low-cost EB-5 money, frequently making it a standard part of their capital stacks.
The need for senior living facilities across the United States has increased dramatically in recent years, with Florida being one of the largest markets because of the warm weather and low taxes, which appeal to retirees. Tampa Oaks Senior Living is the sixth EB-5 project completed by the Regional Center.
“Most issuers tend to head to China to find investors, but there is increasing interest from other markets that represents an opportunity for us,” said Kirk Eicholtz, CEO of Florida Equity and Growth Fund Regional Center. “Among the many benefits of their escrow solution, we found that NES Financial is uniquely qualified and has the most expertise in working with investors and agents from around the world.”
NES Financial’s suite of Intelligent EB-5 Solutions is designed to cover the unique requirements of the entire EB-5 process, start to finish. Each solution provides security, transparency, and compliance for the utmost investor confidence in a project. Whether utilizing select products or the entire bundle, these unique solutions take care of the middle and back office administration so issuers can focus on doing what they do best.
“EB-5 is highly specialized program and can be difficult for financial institutions given the heightened regulatory environment in recent years,” said Reid Thomas, NES Financial Executive Vice President. “Through the bank partner relationships that we have established, we are able to provide the most comprehensive range of solutions on the market.”
