“It’s been a wonderful networking experience. We’ve met some great people with really good projects that are going into the EB-5 world.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
Two day conference of "Unlocking foreign capital through the federal EB-5 program" and “The Bottom Line: Capturing EB-5 Capital in China and Korea Executive Seminar” hosted by EB-5 Institute and Artisan Business Group, Inc., will be taking place in at the Governor Hotel in Portland Oregon March 30-31, 2012.
The conference will be centered on how to secure EB-5 funding from wealthy Chinese and Korean immigrant investors. The EB-5 regional center program has been a growing success, with much foreign investment pouring in from China and Korea. Rapid growth specifically in the Chinese economy has made the EB-5 program more relevant than ever before. The number of wealthy Chinese is growing at 9.7% annually, according to the GroupM Knowledge - Hurun Wealth Report 2011. Additionally, Merrill Lynch and Capgemini’s Asia-Pacific Wealth Report 2008 shows that in 2007, high net-worth individuals in China placed 21% of their assets in real estate versus a worldwide average of 14%. The preference the wealthy Chinese show in real estate, along with the current drop in housing prices and a steady RMB, have made real estate investment in the U.S., along with the EB-5 program, more appealing than ever before. In the past five years, more than $3 billion of foreign capital have been invested into the U.S. through EB-5, creating thousands of jobs in a variety of industries. The Seminar aims to help U.S. companies and individuals tap into more of this foreign capital.
The two day event will be headed by EB-5 Institute and Mr. Brian Su, who is well equipped to help U.S. capital seekers utilize the EB-5 Program. Mr. Su acts as President and CEO of Artisan Business Group, Inc., a national consulting firm specializing in the development of market offerings for business projects seeking foreign capital. Additionally, Mr. Su acts as President of the China EB-5 Market Council. He is also a member of the Association to the Investment in the USA.
This year’s event will provide both EB-5 professionals and those inexperienced with the program a great opportunity to learn more about Chinese and Korean market trends. Attendees of the event will obtain knowledge and experience that will be invaluable in their efforts to obtain EB-5 foreign capital. This year’s seminar is being hosted by Artisan Business Group, Inc., and will be held at the Governor Hotel. Those attending the event also have the opportunity to meet the prior day with Artisan Business Group’s CEO, Mr. Brian Su, for a 1-hour private consultation.
