CMB Accepts 6000th EB-5 InvestorApril 4, 2023
CMB recently accepted its 6000th EB-5 investor. This is a remarkable and humbling milestone. Over the last 25 years, across 82 EB-5 investment partnerships, we’ve had the opportunity to help investors from all over the world pursue their American Dream through the EB-5 immigrant investor program. Approximately 2,000 of those investors have now completed the EB-5 process (approval of their I-829 petition) and have achieved permanent residency in the United States.
CMB’s EB-5 investments have created approximately 200,000 jobs across the United States. Our investors have helped finance infrastructure, renewable energy projects, residential developments, hotels, industrial/logistics facilities, and retail centers in areas of the country where job creation is most needed. We are extremely proud to be a part of a program that has provided such tremendous growth and development to underserved communities.
The CMB family includes investors from 103 countries. We regularly travel all over the world to meet with prospective investors considering the program, as well as our current investors navigating the immigration process. Our large investor relations staff speaks 14+ languages, allowing us to work with investors from any region. CMB and its affiliate employ staff that live in 10 different countries, across 5 continents. Our dedication to our clients and our large and diverse team of professionals allows us to meet with prospective investors all around the world.
In March of 2022, congress reauthorized the EB-5 program through Sept. 2027. The passage of the RIA (EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act) has strengthened the program by providing a clear path forward for future immigrant investors interested in migrating to the United States. The inclusion of set-aside visas for specific EB-5 projects provides compelling options for investors from countries that previously faced longer wait times due to visa retrogression and grandfathering provisions in the bill add certainty and security to the EB-5 process for new investors.
Over the years we’ve established relationships with top U.S. real estate developers to craft incredible EB-5 investment opportunities. In particular, our EB-5 investment partnerships with Hillwood Development Company have helped to meet the high demand for industrial/logistics space created by extreme growth in the ecommerce sector. Hillwood and CMB have collaborated on 35 separate investments, which have utilized over $1 Billion in EB-5 investment capital. CMB partnerships featuring Hillwood projects continue to maintain a 100% project approval and loan repayment rate. We believe Hillwood and CMB represent the most successful lender/borrower relationship in the EB-5 industry.
The future looks bright for the EB-5 immigrant investor program! CMB is one of the oldest and most successful regional center operators in the industry. We currently have multiple high quality EB-5 investment opportunities featuring Hillwood projects open for subscription. If you are interested in learning more, contact us today!
