Characteristics of Chinese EB-5 Investors

Rating: 2 votes, 3.00 average.

By Brian Su

Many immigration attorneys have asked me about EB-5 investors from China.  The majority of Chinese EB-5 investors share the following characteristics:

Who Are They?

—Mostly male, married, between 40-50 years of age

—Private business owners, individuals who made wealthy through investment in stocks and real estate

—The Chinese are willing and eager to invest in the U.S.


Where Are They Coming from?

—Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, ChongQing and 2nd tier cities such as Hangzhou, Shenyang, Chengdu, etc.


What Do They Like?

—Projects in areas with large Asian or Chinese population - They want to stay closer to their own culture, food, language and media.

—Want Green Cards, also prefer to have a real estate unit in the investment exit strategy. Chinese love real estate.

—Better (perceived) value or return with low risk - they expect good ROI and little risk!


What Are the Motivations to Invest Overseas?

—For the sake of their own children's education, safety and future

—Protecting personal assets and family fortune

—Seeking permanent residency (Green Card)  and new business opportunities in the U.S.

    They are looking for alternative investment overseas. Not just Chinese, but other Asians are also keen on real estate.

    True, and real estate development is truly a reflection of how well the economic progress in a country is.
