Nima Korpivaara, Partner at David Hirson & Partners, LLP, was one of four expert panelists who spoke on the evolution of the EB-5 industry at NES Financial’s Innovation Summit 2017 held in Miami on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at the Intercontinental Miami Hotel. Nima shared his expertise alongside Michael Gibson (USAdvisors.org), Julian Montero (Arnstein & Lehr, LLP), and Rohit Kapuria (Arnstein & Lehr LLP). The panelists discussed the differences between EB-5 investors from various parts of the world and shared their insights into how investors from different countries think about immigration and investment plans. Discussion points included currency restrictions around the world and how different processing times for different investors affect their selection of projects to invest in. One example discussed was how many Chinese investors prefer to invest in EB-5 regional center projects instead of direct EB-5 projects. This panel also spoke about transparency in the EB-5 industry and the industry’s progress towards having more transparency.
