How do I find investment experts to help with my EB-5?

I''m 19 years old and i want to invest more than 1 million USD in the US in real estate and film finance, but i want to continue my education in the same time. Who are the experts I need to contact because my knowledge about investing is not enough to go with this money, right? Should i get a business education or trust in the management team that I''ll get and let them manage my investments, or is managing my investments by myself better?

    Please consult an experienced immigration attorney to determine what projects may be available. I recommend that you do your due diligence before making an EB-5 investment.

    If you do not have business experience then it would be unwise to manage your own investment. We have advised investors such as yourself and helped them find the right team to help with their investment idea. For further information please contact Rahbaran & Associates.

    It really depends, if you are looking for projects in the EB5 market you can certainly contact an EB5 Attorney to see what is available out there. However, as to your education you are probably better off talking to a college counselor to determine what it is that you want to do.

    Normally you do not need a financial advisor for your EB-5 investment because you will not be involved in the management. You do need an immigration lawyer though. Anyone of us here can help you.

    It is more prudent and wise that you keep your money while you finish your education first, before you invest in the U.S. real estate and film finance. At your age, it is too risky to hire a management team to manage your investment, especially since you are unfamiliar with the business practices and customs in the U.S.. You will be easily deceived by those people who smell big money and blood.

    It is very surprising that you have $1 million dollars at your disposal at age 19, and no investment experience. You would do well to study investing and not allow yourself to be taken advantage of. If you have parents, you should seek their advice.

    You should hire an independent financial expert to evaluate the investment for you. It is a lot of money and you want to take all the protections you can ahead of time.

    You should hire at a minimum: a financial adviser, a securities export, and an experienced immigration attorney.

    This EB5investors.com website has list of professionals you can contact for help with your EB-5 case. Your investment in real estate probably won''t work because most real estate investments are passive investments that do not create jobs. It is better to have experienced EB-5 professionals, including an immigration attorney, to advise you in these matters.

    You should consult an attorney who has sufficient experience in EB5 visa process. You may study while you make the investments.

    Really good question. The easy answer is that you need competent legal counsel to advise you with the investment aspects of any investment you make, and a competent immigration attorney to advise you on how to obtain lawful permanent resident status based on your investment and the economic activity you can prove that the investment created. So it''s very complicated. Trust no one who is not working directly for you. In the U.S. under our legal system, lawyers represent your interests when you hired them as your attorney. So it''s very very very important that you enter into that sort of special relationship with an attorney who you can trust. Attorneys licensed to practice in every U.S. jurisdiction are subject to discipline if they fail to protect your interests. This is the most important thing that you can do for yourself first. Anyone therefore who is not your attorney- is not someone who you can assume is pursuing your interests. Be very careful what you do. Also, all attorneys themselves can be researched in the State where they have a license. You can verify that they have a clean record that they have not been disciplined in the past for doing something wrong. So that is something you should do as well.

    Educate yourself, the EB-5 investment is "at risk" and you are ultimately responsible for both the investment itself and your immigration status. There is no management team that can substitute for your own judgment. Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia; dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts, and recycling it for more than it''s worth.
