Founded by first-generation U.S. immigrants who met at and graduated from Harvard Business School in 1997, LCR Capital Partners is a global private investment firm that deploys growth capital in signature real estate and hospitality projects as well as the well-established U.S. franchise industry.
Founded in 2012, LCR is headquartered in Westport, CT, and has established regional offices in Miami, FL (2014), São Paulo and Shanghai (2015), Mumbai and Cape Town (2016), Dubai and Houston (2018) and will be establishing an office in Washington DC 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 directly from foreign U/HNW investors, C-level executives, professionals, family business owners and entrepreneurs who are interested in gaining access to the United States via the U.S. government’s EB-5 Investor Visa Program. LCR is committed to providing its EB5 investors with best-in-class and institutional quality investment projects focused on strong job creation and principal protection.
Our EB-5 investors’ primary investment objectives are three-fold: (i) to earn U.S. green cards through our EB5 investment funds and thus strengthen the odds of their children’s admission to selective U.S. colleges and graduate schools; (ii) to enable their children to reliably gain access to top U.S. professional opportunities upon graduation [and thereby avoid the need to win an H-1B visa via an unpredictable annual lottery system] and (iii) the protection, preservation and timely return of capital.
