AURC closely adheres to the principles of reliability, trustworthiness and professionalism whenworking with business leaders, government officials and real estate developers to identify projects suitable for the EB-5 program. To accomplish this, we structure the investment to be as secure as possible and work with experienced industry experts in the fields of immigration law, regional center operations, securities law and economic modeling.
In-depth due diligence is also performed on every potential project to ensure that the business venture meets our strict and selective screening process. Qualifying projects may be business ventures that are associated with job creation, such as real estate based projects or manufacturing. Real estate projects include hotels, senior care facilities, hospitals, education-related structures, retail centers, office buildings and apartments.
Additionally, AURC employs a meticulous approach to design each project to meet the following priorities:
- Execute the business plan to enable the EB-5 investors to obtain permanent residency without conditions
- Return the EB-5 capital to the investors in a timely fashion
Once a project passes our screening process and AURC proceeds with structuring and executing the EB-5 investment, AURC utilizes a systematic approach to manage the investment from its inception all the way until each EB-5 investor receives both permanent residency and the return of their investment. Key points of the systematic approach include safeguards we put in place to maintain control over the project during the term of the investment, and a simple economic methodology to ensure the project creates the required number of jobs.
In brief, our investment management philosophy can be summarized by the following objectives:
- Minimize the risk of failing to execute the business plan through strict project supervision
- Maximize the certainty of a successful permanent residence application through simple job creation methodology
- Maximize the successful return of EB-5 investor capital
