Roy Carrasquillo, managing shareholder and leader of CLG’s EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program Services and Compliance practice group, was recently interviewed by Anayat Durrani of EB-5 Investors Magazine, in which he discussed the fact that Mexico is expected to see greater growth in the EB-5 market, and how the economic and political conditions make the country ripe for greater interest by Mexican investors in the EB-5 program.
“We have seen significant growth in the Mexico market during the past two years in the EB-5 space,” says Rogelio J. Carrasquillo, Esq., shareholder, Carrasquillo Law Group P.C. “I have personally worked with various clients in Mexico since the beginning of my career and have been able to see the financial growth and changes in political climate since the late 1990’s to the present.”
The changing political climate in Mexico has spurred many investors to seek out more permanent alternatives to emigrate to the U.S. Carrasquillo says high net worth individuals and families are seeking to combine their immigration and financial strategies by evaluating and investing in projects in the U.S. and incorporating EB-5 to those projects to relocate to the U.S.
“We have been working with various groups and family offices who are pooling resources and investing in projects in various industries and adding an EB-5 component to such projects. These projects are significant, but smaller than the old EB-5 raises,” says Carrasquillo. “They also tend to incorporate several sources of capital in addition to EB-5 and provide a closer to market return to investors. Also, in our experience, the investors and their advisors are integral parts of the management of the projects.”
