LCR Capital Partners is a global private investment and advisory services firm that is the ideal partner for families interested in U.S. immigration and investment.
Led by classmates who met at Harvard Business School, one third of the LCR team is first-generation immigrants to the United States. The firm has been active since 2012 and works with over 800 clients from 31 countries. The firm has launched 8 funds and raised over $170m in its last two signature real estate developments from The Four Seasons and Leading Hotels of the World. LCR is headquartered in Westport, CT and has five regional offices in Miami, Sao Paulo, Dubai, Mumbai and Singapore.
LCR believes global investment and immigration make the world stronger. When families decide to become global, they open up new opportunities in business and education. They open the door to a better future that bring benefits to the communities they come from and the countries they choose to join. In the United States, successful immigrants have founded the companies that define American innovation like Google and Tesla, and are driving continued growth of iconic brands like Microsoft and Pepsi both in the United States and around the world.
The LCR Overseas Regional Center (LORC), which encompasses the Greater New York Metro area, was approved on May 16th, 2014. LCR Atlantic Gulf Regional Center (LAG), which encompasses areas in Florida and Georgia, was approved on November 25th, 2015.
As an emerging leader in the EB-5 industry, LCR currently operates various Regional Centers designed to help foreign investors obtain U.S. green cards via job-creating investments in the United States.
The firm’s investment capital is sourced from a global investor base of 800+ foreign high net worth (HNW) investors and who hail from over 30 countries and represent a diverse cross-section of C-level executives, highly-skilled professionals (on H-1B visas), international students, VC/PE investment professionals, family business owners, and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Regardless of their backgrounds, our investors share a common belief that the U.S. remains one of the most exciting geographies in which to invest. They rightly view the U.S. as a gateway to a better future for their families via the EB-5 Investor Visa Program. They also see U.S. residency as an opportunity to realize superior financial returns for their businesses by gaining access to the U.S. market or through alternative U.S. based investments that LCR is uniquely positioned to source and evaluate.
LCR’s investors typically pursue two or more of the following investment objectives: (i) strengthen the odds of their children’s admission to selective U.S. colleges and graduate schools; (ii) enable their children to reliably gain access to top U.S. professional opportunities upon graduation (and thereby avoid the need to win the annual H-1B visa lottery); (iii) enable foreign professionals under H-1B or L1 visas to dramatically increase their career mobility/advancement; (iv) secure a residency safety net and back-up plan in situations of political instability, social unrest or economic crisis and/or (v) the protection, preservation and timely return of capital.
