The feedback we have received from current and prospective EB-5 investors has been extremely positive, and we are confident that our teaming with NES Financial — whose name, to investors, is synonymous with online visibility and third-party oversight — will further facilitate this process.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) January 26, 2018
Metropica, one of the nation’s largest under-construction mixed-use communities, today announced that it will utilize NES Financial’s range of EB-5 Escrow, Immigration Workflow, and Loan Servicing Solutions — which are designed to help developers raise and deploy EB-5 capital more quickly, minimize risk and streamline project efficiency — to support the development’s EB-5 initiative.
The EB-5 program, created in 1990, encourages foreign investment into projects that stimulate U.S. job growth. Once relatively obscure, in recent years there has been an exponential rise in the use of EB-5 capital in projects of all types and sizes. NES Financial’s Intelligent EB-5 Solutions have been used on more than 650 projects to date, representing over $20B in EB-5 capital — more than any other service provider in the market.
Use of these EB-5 Solution Suites has earned the Metropica development a NES Financial Platinum Medallion, signifying the project’s commitment to industry best practices and to providing investors with the highest levels of security, transparency and compliance.
The $1.5 billion development will ultimately encompass approximately 4 million square feet, consisting of residential condominiums, apartments, hotels, contemporary Class-A office space, green spaces and a broad range of retail and entertainment offerings.
“South Florida is an extremely appealing destination for international buyers and investors,” said Joseph Kavana, CEO of Metropica Development LLC. “The feedback we have received from current and prospective EB-5 investors has been extremely positive, and we are confident that our teaming with NES Financial — whose name, to investors, is synonymous with online visibility and third-party oversight — will further facilitate this process.”
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. These solutions take care of the middle- and back-office administration so issuers can focus on project success.
“Smooth and successful EB-5 fund administration for a project of this size is very difficult for developers to achieve on their own,” said Reid Thomas, Executive Vice President & General Manager at NES Financial. “Our suite of intelligent EB-5 Solutions streamlines this process, offering peace of mind to all involved, and will ensure that the industry’s best in technology-enabled security, transparency and compliance is provided to Metropica’s investors.”
