NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2013) - GATE Global Impact and USAdvisors.org launch a new platform EB5M.com focused on the USCIS EB5 Immigrant Investor visa program. EB5M.com will be the source for information on EB-5 Visa Regional Center Project offerings as well as direct U.S. Private Equity, research, news, and market analysis. For additional information please see www.EB5M.com or 212-796-6937.
The EB-5 visa program allows foreign investors (and their spouses and unmarried children under 21) who make an investment in a commercial enterprise in the United States and who plan to create or preserve ten permanent full time jobs for qualified United States workers eligible for a green card. The EB5M.com platform will provide a centralized marketplace for sourcing investments opportunities and corresponding research.
"The key problem in the EB-5 industry has been for investors and attorneys to verify the claims being made by the U.S. developers and assess the risks involved with the project's ability to create the required number of eligible jobs and the probabilities that capital will be returned at term. We have brought together a team of professionals who will provide due diligence and risk analysis to independently assess the developer's ability to both create jobs in accordance with USCIS specifications as well as determine the feasibility of the job creating enterprise to create sufficient asset value to return capital to all of the investors and lenders within a reasonable period of time. EB5M.com will facilitate the ability for economists, credit and equity analysts, risk and securities due diligence experts to be able to disseminate this crucial information to investors, their advisors and counsel." -- Michael Gibson, Managing Director, USAdvisors.org
The mission of GATE Global Impact is to fulfill the increasing global demand for market infrastructure that enables capital to identify and transact in investments that provide a sustainable social and/or environmental benefit, job creation and financial return.
"EB5M.com is a source for both funding and job creation in the U.S., ultimately delivering good which is the main goal and mission of GATE Impact. This is a disruptive change to the way EB-5 projects have been marketed incorporating innovation and securities best practices to the EB-5 marketplace offering transparency to investors, issuers and regulators alike. Having the EB5M.com platform will allow U.S. developers to distribute project offering information to qualified investors globally without having to travel overseas or negotiate with offshore agents facilitating the raise of offshore capital and lowering investor acquisition costs in a way that is compliant with U.S. federal and state securities laws and regulations." -- Vincent Molinari, CEO, GATE
GATE has created a centralized electronic marketplace to facilitate the transactions of impact-focused investment products and has developed a utility that provides efficiency, transparency, liquidity and education that enables the transaction processes in a variety of markets. All EB5M security transactions will be conducted by GATE US member FINRA/SIPC.
GATE provides an end-to-end solution inclusive of information, performance metrics, settlement and clearance. These markets include private equity, private debt, microfinance and environmental credits. GATE Global Impact ultimately believes they will have a positive influence by providing investors and entrepreneurs a regulatory compliant marketplace to interact allowing for future job creation and stimulate economic growth.
CrowdCheck will provide due diligence services for EB5M. The CrowdCheck Report that will appear on EB5M will provide investors and attorneys with reassurance about the legitimacy of a project and the people behind it, and the assertions made by the project's developers.
