As investor confidence in the EB-5 Program has grown, so have the opportunities to develop new markets to bring even more job-creating capital to the U.S.

Invest in the USA (IIUSA), the national not-for-profit industry trade association for the EB-5 Regional Center Program (the “Program”), recently published the first-of-its kind EB-5 Investor Markets Report, a quantitative and qualitative analysis of established and emerging EB-5 investor markets. The report will be updated annually going forward.

“As the EB-5 Program has come of age in the last decade, it has established a track record of success for foreign investors that have participated. As investor confidence in the program has grown, so have the opportunities to develop new markets to bring even more job-creating capital to the U.S.,” said IIUSA Executive Director Peter D. Joseph. “We are excited about the publication of this report and believe it will help further the emerging discourse around emerging investor markets by providing a comprehensive analysis of markets since the beginning of EB-5.”

The EB-5 Investor Markets Report is the first comprehensive analysis of investor market demand, bringing into focus the countries and regions poised for growth in the years ahead. IIUSA has accumulated a complete historical dataset for 1992-2014. Every country in the world with market data is assigned a “growth score”, allowing objective trend comparisons of various countries and regions against the average growth of the industry over various time spans.

“This new annual report will help EB-5 stakeholders draw important conclusion that can lead to actionable steps to bring new investors into the Program,” said IIUSA Investor Markets Committee Chair Lili Wang. “With the current backlog of numbers for Mainland Chinese EB-5 visa applicants, it is more important than ever to cultivate investor markets in other parts of the world.”

Since 2008, EB-5 has contributed over $13 billion in foreign direct investment to the U.S. that supports tens of thousands of jobs and transforming communities across the country through successful regional economic development projects. The newly published Investor Markets Report will further the industry’s understanding of the factors driving international market growth and highlights the markets that will continue to drive U.S. economic development all at no cost to the U.S. taxpayer.
