Why We Are the Best Choice for EB-5 Investment

Our investments are structured like a loan. Investors are given a fixed return and a fixed exit strategy. This way investors know what they are getting upfront and can concentrate on setting up their new life in the United States.
Investor funds are held in escrow 100% until the project receives its I-526 approval. Investors do not have to worry about their funds going into a project that might not be able to deliver immigration benefits.
Berkeley Regional Center projects are guaranteed to be fully funded and start construction on time. We simply utilize bridge financing to start the project regardless of the progress of raising EB-5 capital or if USCIS is slow to give approvals. The project will start construction, start creating jobs and proceed as planned.

Investors don’t have to worry that the project won’t find enough investors and their funds may be stuck in escrow or the project stalls because the developer doesn’t have enough capital. The project is essentially creating jobs before the investors funds are ever at risk.

The Berkeley Regional Center invest in projects where 100% of the job creation can be met through construction jobs alone. With construction, we structure all of our projects with construction completion guarantees which effectively guarantees all the job creation will have been created. There is no market risk to construction jobs because we control the process 100%. Operating jobs, or jobs based on successful business operations are at risk of being created slower or potentially never being created at all.

We utilize the indirect “expenditure” method for job creation (RIMS-II model) because it is a simple, transparent and reliable form of job creation that USCIS has approved hundreds of times before. It is further comforting that most residential projects are very simple in construction and smaller in size so any issues that do arise are easy to solve.

Construction completion guarantees are required on all our construction projects. This continues our string of guarantees making sure that when EB-5 investor funds are released from escrow, they are invested in a project that is guaranteed to deliver a cash flowing asset. The construction completion guarantee also works twice for investors as it also guarantees all the job creation will be met as well. The construction completion guarantee is extremely useful within the BRC EB-5 investment strategy.
Our loan investments are secured by a Corporate Repayment Guaranty from the developer. Most Eb-5 projects that are loan investments are “non-recourse” or simply secured by the invested project itself. The Berkeley Regional Center provides extreme protection for EB-5 investors by requiring the develop to provide the repayment guaranty at the “Corporate” level, not the “project” level. This means that the investors are secured by ALL of the developers assets including cash, land and finished assets.

For our investors this means lower risk, more security…
