We believe EB-5 investors deserve the highest quality investment guidance available
We founded AISA with a simple goal: to give EB-5 investors the highest standard professional support, enabling them to make a sound investment decision that achieves their immigration and financial objectives.
As professionals who developed our expertise at global financial institutions as well as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, we saw a need. Looking at the EB-5 market, we found there were very few financial experts evaluating EB-5 projects.
We believed there was an opportunity to better help immigrant investors by combining deep knowledge of the EB-5 program with a sophisticated approach to investment. And we were passionate about providing a first-class service at no additional out-of-pocket cost for our clients.
Providing top-notch EB-5 investment counsel means researching and analyzing projects in the same rigorous way we’d evaluate any other investment and balancing the financial considerations with clients’ immigration objectives. We examine many deals that our clients never hear about because we will only put the AISA name on the ones we think are suitable investments.
Our own personal experiences have given us an appreciation for the excitement – and challenge – of the emigration process and beginning life in a new country. We know how exhilarating it can be, and at the same time, how difficult it is to leave loved ones and a familiar homeland for a country with different language, laws and culture. Understanding what our clients go through has made us even more passionate about making the EB-5 investment process as easy as possible.
AISA is committed to giving EB-5 investors what they deserve: the best support available to help them make one of the most important decisions of their lives.
