Private Placements – EB-5 Placement Services
Antarctica counts with a unique private placement practice focused on raising capital for developers and companies seeking financing through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program.
The fifth employment-based preference (EB-5) was created by Congress in 1990 as an immigrant visa category for immigrants seeking to engage in a commercial enterprise that will benefit the US economy and create at least 10 full-time jobs. In return for investing in a commercial enterprise through a sustained period of at least 2-years, the EB-5 program provides a Permanent Resident visa (Green Card) to qualified investors and their immediate families.
Antarctica’s private placement practice has developed a network of foreign lawyers, private wealth advisors and immigration advisors through which it sources EB-5 capital.
Members of Antarctica’s specialized EB-5 teamwork closely with developers seeking to access this unique source of capital to build an investment structure that meets the needs of both the developer and immigrant investors. Antarctica also works with developers’ other capital providers to create the most efficient capital structure for the project that satisfies each source of capitals’ risk and reward requirements.
Antarctica is the exclusive placement agent for American Regional Center Group’s growing portfolio of regional centers.
