Comment: New EB5 Countries


CNBC published an article: on the top three countries which millionaires have been leaving for a decade.



According to the study, they're leaving China in the largest numbers, with 76,200 Chinese millionaires exiting the country between 2003 and 2013. That's 15 percent of its total millionaire population, according to the report.


The second largest millionaire loser is India, which saw 43,400, or 27 percent of its millionaires, leave the country in those 10 years. France ranked third, losing 31,700, or 13 percent of its total.




It is important to note that the study was conducted based on stats of over a decade, this is not an anomaly for a year. While China is number one, it is shocking how close India and France are to China’s numbers. In addition, it is most interesting that India and France are ranked at second and third – not what you might expect given EB5 industry experience so far.


Based on this data, we reach two conclusions:


  1. India, in the long-term, is an excellent EB-5 market.


  2. The current situation we see in EB-5 will adjust itself to where we will see the relative number of countries like France increasing and the relative number of countries like China decreasing.

Focus: EB-5 Events for Chinese Students

Chinese international students are coming to the US in dramatically increased numbers. The explosion in undergrad Chinese students started in 2008 and continues. For EB-5 purposes Chinese students offer the best prospects. We have been conducting events in 2014 educating Chinese Students on EB-5 in New York City. We can conduct similar events in six other cities across US. For each city we promote the event to multiple campuses across the metropolitan region; this can vary from ten to twenty campuses per city. The time frame for the events is determined based on the academic calendar. These are short evening events that require a short single night stay trip from the sponsoring Regional Center or law firm. During the educational event covering the students' immigration options the sponsor makes a short presentation about their project or law firm. The event structure allows for plenty of networking opportunities with students. These events are available only to Regional Centers that use Regulation-D or to law firms, and we require clients to consult a securities attorney before signing up for these events. For more information please contact us at tel: (212)545-0818 or write to us at webmaster@ilw.com.
