On April 13th, the IIUSA Membership passed the Best Practices Committee (“BPC”) recommendation for the inclusion of a “Best Practices for Engaging With Intermediaries” document to be included in IIUSA’s published industry best practices.
This document is intended to provide IIUSA members with guidance regarding best practices for engaging with intermediaries who will introduce such members’ EB-5 investment products to individual foreign investors or otherwise assist in the offer and sale of these investment products. Such intermediaries can take many forms. The IIUSA Best Practices Committee (the “Committee”) has divided this document into three sections.
- Covers general best practices that apply to all intermediaries, be they domestic or foreign, large or small.
- Covers best practices applicable to U.S. broker-dealers.
- Covers best practices applicable to foreign migration agents.
Through its Best Practices Committee, IIUSA continuously explores and publishes industry best practices to further the professional and business goals of the Regional Center industry. By raising the bar at which the EB-5 regional Center Program business is conducted, IIUSA advocates professional integrity by Regional Centers and the industry that serves them. Best practices are vital to the success of the EB-5 industry and they enable organizations to thrive in this growing marketplace.
IIUSA is proud to continue to lead the EB-5 regional Center industry by setting the bar for industry best practices and will continue to update these guide to ensure the highest standards of professional integrity.
