The Benefits of the EB-5 Program during a downturn economy
The U.S. economy has seen unemployment increasing at an unprecedented level with 16 million people of new unemployment claims in only three weeks. As a consequence, consumer confidence and the impact on the financial industry is all but imminent. During periods of crisis U.S. companies find it harder to secure loans, or capital investors. Dr. Fernandez will be speaking about the benefits of the EB-5 program in a downturn economy.
Dr. Fernández, originally from Madrid, Spain, is the founder and president of Greengate Consulting, an Atlanta based consultancy firm that offers business planning services and advice, international tax planning, and marketing services to domestic start-ups and international investors seeking to start their own business in the U.S. Dr. Fernández is heavily involved with the EB-5 program, a government immigration and investment program that grants the U.S. Residency and a path to Citizenship to those investors that enhance the economic activity of areas in need of employment.
Dr. Fernández, now recognized by EB-5 Investors Magazine as a Top 5 EB-5 Economist in the country, started his career in the EB-5 space as a natural extension to his practice in immigration business consulting that began in 2010. Prior to being an independent business consultant, Ismael was a manager at General Electric, leading a team of forecasting analysts pacing the production of over $1 billion of spare parts for gas turbine engines worldwide.
Ismael currently resides in Atlanta, has three kids, and dedicates most of his free time to his family. He is passionate about soccer and aviation, and, whenever the opportunity arises, takes advantage of his flying skills to visit EB-5 projects in the region.
