Five Top Legal, Financial and Tax Experts Will Offer Valuable Insights into What Draws Overseas Investors to the U.S. Real Estate Market and How the EB-5 Program Works to Raise Capital
LIGHTNING RELEASES — Los Angeles, California – August 25, 2014 – Los Angeles real estate authority Karim Jaude and his Dynamics Capital Group are proud to present an exceptional panel of experts to discuss overseas investments in U.S. real estate and EB-5 visas in an evening seminar at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel, 11461 Sunset Boulevard, on Tuesday, September 16, 2014, from 7 to 9 pm.
Jaude and his panel of four top legal, financial and tax professionals will explore what attracts overseas investors to the U.S. real estate market and their objectives and strategies, why the EB-5 program may be the best way to raise capital for domestic real estate investments, and the smartest ways to access and secure these sources of overseas capital.
The seminar offers exclusive networking opportunities with the speakers and fellow audience members. Register by September 15th for only $50, or at the door for $60. Email or call Karim Jaude at email@example.com or 310.471.0650 to register. Earn two hours of CE credits for CPAs.
“Direct foreign investments are one of the driving forces that has helped the U.S. real estate market recover faster than anyone anticipated,” explains Jaude. “I believe if real estate professionals have sufficient expertise in attracting foreign investors, the influx of overseas capital could exponentially increase. Spend just two hours with these experts and learn from their valuable insights. You can’t get this kind of practical knowledge in one place at one time anywhere else.”
