EB-5 Investment Voice,
(Mona Shah & Associates Podcast Series)
Reported by Hermione Krumm, Esq.
EB-5 Investment Voice is the only Podcast series that focuses onthe United States immigrant investor visa, EB-5 and foreign direct investment. Mona Shah welcomes guests from the industry including: developers, regional center operatives, attorneys, legislators and politicians.
The EB-5 Investment Voice audience data shows that Mexico comes in at number six, and Brazil is not far behind at number eight. As such, it’s time to take a closer look at these emerging markets, and explore the intricacies of EB-5 investors in Latin America.
In this podcast, Mona’s guest is Manuel Ortiz, head of EB-5, sales and investor relations for Civitas Capital Group out of Dallas. The two discuss EB-5 in the Latin American market. They address which are the most sought-after projects in the LatAm market, drawing comparison to Chinese investors: how security concerns shape the approach Civitas takes in attracting Latin American investors, and the pros and cons of direct investment deals. Manuel also advises developers on how to work with Latin American clients, in particular, why renting is preferable to setting up your own Regional Center for developers targeting the Latin American market.
