Focus: Change in EB5 Market – its all about marketing

Old EB5 Model-Seller's Market New EB5 Mondel-Buyer's Market
Issuers Small number of Issuers
(Project + USCIS approval = investment success)
Large number of Issuers
(USCIS approval & good project are commodities)
Market Only China Multiple markets:
China, India, Vietnam, etc.
Roles Issuer gets project & USCIS approval;
Chinese Agent does SOF and Sales
Breakup of functions:
SOF by US immigration attorneys,
Marketing by Issuers,
Sales by agents
(A Good Project and USCIS approval are now commodities due to the large number of Issuers with both)
Marketing Marketing NOT necessary for success
(because market was a seller’s market with more demand than supply)

Marketing Necessary for success
(because market is now buyer’s market with more supply than demand)
