What does it mean that an EB-5 investment must be ‘at risk’?

The EB-5 program requires that the EB-5 investor make an “at-risk” investment, which means there must be a risk of loss and a chance for gain. The investment must not contain any right of redemption of capital, meaning an investor must not have any payment guarantees or the ability to redeem their investment amount at their discretion.
Just because the EB-5 program requires that the investment be “at-risk” does not mean it has to be “risky.” Investors should perform thorough due diligence during their project selection with the main considerations being the likelihood of obtaining a green card and a return of their capital.
