SFM Global LLC provides three-pillar approach methods for foreign national investors to achieve their goals. These goals are described below according to SFM Global LLC vision:
Ensuring the capital is “at risk” does not mean that the EB-5 investment needs to be “risky”. Just like the investor, SFM Global LLC’s success depends on the strength of the borrower.
Ensuring that the goals of the Regional Center are well-aligned with the goals of the EB-5 investor provides for a successful foundation.
Secure a return on EB-5 investment for our investors. Notice that the return on EB-5 investment is third on the list. Why? If the primary goal of the investor is a return on investment, we are positive that EB-5 is not be the best tool for that investor. The primary goal of an EB-5 investor is the permanent visa not a return on the EB-5 investment. Potential EB-5 investors have acquired considerable net worth and are sophisticated investors. They understand the perils of high-risk investments. SFM Global LLC believes the EB-5 program is not an “investment” program, rather a jobs creation program. We structure our EB-5 investments with their primary focus to achieve the first two aforementioned goals. We believe safety in EB-5 means being able to show ten new American jobs at the final stage and confidence our investment were truly qualified for the lower threshold if they are $500,000 investments. Our EB-5 investments are projected to provide a very small return on investment; however, our approach that a safe EB-5 investment (one that will produce jobs) that minimizes risk offers the investor confidence they will receive permanent residency and their original capital back. This structure meets the “at risk” requirement of the EB-5 program and in our opinion it is structured as one of the safest EB-5 investments today.
