Founded by first-generation immigrants who graduated from Harvard Business School in 1997, LCR Capital Partners is a partner-owned, global investment firm which finances the development of signature real estate and hospitality projects across the United States.
Founded in 2012, LCR is headquartered in Westport, CT and has established regional of offices in Miami, FL (2014), São Paulo (2015), Mumbai and Cape Town (2016), and Dubai (2018). The firm plans to establish offices in Washington, DC, and Singapore later this year.
LCR earned its first Regional Center license in 2014 and currently operates Regional Centers covering the following states: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida and Georgia.
Designated by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, EB-5 Regional Centers are organizations that receive and manage capital investment projects for EB-5 immigrant investors.
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 600+ 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.
