US banking firm to host seminars across GCC.

US Freedom Capital, the premier EB-5 investment banking firm, is all set to launch its US immigration investment seminar across the GCC.

The seminar will be covering Dubai, Abu Dhabi, in the UAE; Manama in Bahrain and Muscat in Oman, and will be part of a roadshow.

The seminar will commence at the Shangri-La hotel in Dubai, UAE, on October 11 from 8 am to 4 pm.

The event will feature David Gunderson, principal and executive vice president of the company as well as Stan Bradshaw, CEO of US Freedom Capital as the keynote speakers. Subsequently, the event will also be hosted in Abu Dhabi at the Shangri-La hotel on the October 12; in Manama, Bahrain at the Intercontinental hotel on the October 14 and finally in Muscat, Oman at the Radisson Blu hotel on October 16.

David Gunderson, principal and executive vice president of the company, said: "We are extremely pleased to host this seminar in Dubai as well as other cities in the GCC and are looking forward to introducing US Freedom Capital, as well as educating people about the EB-5 visa programme. As a firm, our core strengths are: our in-house experts that comprise of two former directors and the highest-ranking career officer at US Immigration (USCIS), over $4 billion of institutional-quality investment real estate experience, as well as the transparency we offer to our clients in terms of our operations."

Gunderson added: "Based on our research, the Middle East is already the second-biggest source of the EB-5 immigrant entrepreneur or investor visa category. For foreigners, the EB-5 presents a relatively safe and attractive investment model and at the same time provides the means to a passport over a five-year period. Apart from these factors, investment in the UK is at least [pounds sterling]1 million ($1.6 million), while France is E10m ($12.7 million) and with the suspension of the Canadian Federal Investor programme and a cap on the Quebec Immigrant Investor programmes, US provides as an attractive option for many GCC residents. Through this seminar we aim to answer questions for individuals and families as well as educate them how we can help them with easy transition if they are interested in the programme."

Organised with the aim of educating foreign nationals about the USCIS EB-5 Immigrant Investor programme as well as the most reliable paths to obtain U.S. permanent residency (Green Card), the seminar will discuss facts, challenges, and issues that foreign nationals need to know about immigration through the EB-5 visa programme.

Aside from discussing the benefits and opportunities provided by the EB-5 programme, the seminar will discuss, at length, the US Taxation System structure, as well legal ways to mitigate US income tax, provide guidance on taxation planning. Interested investors will be provided with an opportunity to have one-on-one discussions after the seminar to gauge the various benefits and investment opportunities provided by US freedom Capital as a company, as well as the benefits provided by the programme and US citizenship/green card in general.

Targeting not just regular investors and individuals looking for permanent visa residency of the US but also families looking to send their children abroad for further studies, the seminar will also provide parents and students with information about the various benefits available to them via the EB-5 programme. The seminar will be followed by a questions and answers session where individuals and families will be given the opportunity to discuss questions related to their specific dynamics. - TradeArabia News Service
