Comment: Meet India Broker Dealer in NYC
Given Chinese retrogression, it is prudent to diversify to other countries. India is the only country that has the numbers to serve as a genuine alternative or a large supplement to China. A team from an Indian broker dealer led by its CEO will be in New York City from Sunday July 17th to Tuesday July 19th (the Indian broker dealer contemplates that final arrangements arrived at in the USA will be through a US-licensed broker dealer, this is required not only by US securities laws, but also by Indian securities laws). To meet with them to discuss the India EB5 market and regulatory landscape, please request an appointment here.

  • India saw the 43,000 millionaires leave the country in ten years ending in 2013-second only to China.
  • India is already in second tier of 7 EB5 countries which come after China. It is the fastest growing of the top eight (including China) EB-5 markets in the world.
  • India is the only competitor to China in the long run in EB-5. No other country can even come close to China.
  • India is fully English speaking country-no translation needed even for official documents.
  • Indian regulatory structures are more robust than China. India source of funds will be easier to handle for USCIS as compared to China source of funds.

India Lead Generation:

  • Supported with follow-up by US qualified immigration attorney on the ground in India, along with a securities team fully qualified under US law

The meeting slots are limited; request an appointment today. For more information call 212-545-0818 or write to
