(MENAFN Editorial) U.S. private investment firm LCR Capital Partners has doubled its India EB-5 client base for the second year in a row. Widely recognized as pioneers in introducing the EB-5 investment visa program to the Indian subcontinent, LCRs client base doubled last year to 92 Indian HNI clients and is on track to more than double once again and reach 225 clients by the end of 2018.
Commenting on their market leading presence in the fast-growing India EB5 market, Rogelio Caceres, LCRs Co-Founder and CCO, said, Developing the Indian EB5 market, literally since its inception in 2015, has been a very rewarding experience for us. LCR is now widely recognized as pioneer in the two fastest growing EB5 market in the world (India and Brazil). We have seen a record spike in the number of Indian families actively looking for alternate legal and expedient routes for migrating to the US and wanting to acquire a Green Card. He further added, According to reports, over 500 Indians applied for EB-5 visas in 2017, against 354 in 2016.
We foresee the number of Indian EB5 applicants crossing the 1,000 mark in 2019 catapulting India to become the 2nd largest EB-5 market in the world.
