DEVELOPER-INDEPENDENT, IN SERVICE TO GLOBAL INVESTORS
Mission. Texas Growth Fund Regional Center is a government-accredited company that provides real estate investment opportunities for immigrant investors who want to participate in the EB-5 Visa Program.
Located in the Fastest-Growing City in the United States. Texas Growth Fund is located in Austin, Texas. In 2016, for the fifth time in six years, Forbes Magazine ranked Austin as America’s fastest growing city. Forbes also put Austin top of its list of U.S. cities with “the best chance to prosper in the coming decade.”
Booming Texas Economy. All of the firm’s EB-5 projects are in Texas: three are in Austin, one is in Houston. These projects benefit from the booming Texas economy and its attractive real estate development costs, which can confer significant advantages to investors compared to the saturated New York and California markets.
A Portfolio of Projects. After the successful completion of a project, it may be necessary to re-deploy EB-5 capital to another project. This is because the EB-5 Program stipulates that investor capital must remain “at risk” for five years. Therefore, it is helpful for immigrant investors if their Regional Center has a portfolio of available projects. Investors can also better evaluate a Regional Center if it has a range of projects, rather than just a single offering.
Developer-Independent. Texas Growth Fund Regional Center is fully independent of the project developers to whom it makes loans, enabling the firm to serve its investors’ interests without compromise. Given the standard 5-year time frame of the EB-5 process, this independence can be a crucial benefit to investors.
Industry-Leading Team. The principals and staff of Texas Growth Fund have extensive executive experience in private equity, real estate financing, investment banking and EB-5. They are complemented by a team of legal and professional experts who are each prominent figures in their respective fields. Click any of the team member’s names to view their bio.
Interfacing with Washington, D.C. While Texas Growth Fund projects are focused in Austin, we are simultaneously active with representatives in Congress and with federal government agencies in Washington, D.C. that are involved in directing the legislation and regulation that impacts the status and evolution of the EB-5 Program. For example, we recently joined a group of fewer than 10 industry-leaders in the U.S. in a session with Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona to collaborate on how to succeed in bi-partisan negotiation of the most balanced and beneficial possible EB-5 Program reforms and reauthorization.
Local Philanthropy, Global Reach.Texas Growth Fund supports Austin charities that reach across continents – Caring For Cambodia, dedicated to “building a brighter future one child at a time” is a case in point – as well as local treasures like the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum. We also help local startups (Austin is the startup capital of the United States) who are developing technologies that will enhance international understanding.
USCIS Designation. Texas Growth Fund Regional Center LLC was designated as a Regional Center by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services on May 21, 2014.
