    Focus: EB5 India Opportunity
    India Opportunity:

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