Debt, equity, derivative contracts are examples of security. The SEC applies strict rules to help in the operation of securities. There is every possibility for EB-5 investments to pass through a strict oversight by SEC. If the EB-5 applicant is eligible for an accredited investor status, then there can be a waiver.

Security can be applied by an investor to ask for payback on their investment.
