The Green Card Fund Regional Center employs a rigorous project-screening methodology that takes into consideration USCIS standards, federally defined underwriting guidelines (FHA, HUD, USDA), and our own GCF standards. Our thorough due diligence process reviews financial statements, business plans, market studies, econometric studies, and past experience.
Green Card Fund meticulously reviews each project, focusing on job creation, financial solvency, and exit plan viability. Once a project is signed on by GCF, we have full confidence in its ability to create the requisite amount of jobs, execute on the business plan presented, make timely interest payments to all investors, and return the initial investment capital to investors in a timely manner after receipt of a permanent green card.
We at Green Card Fund believe in transparency through every step of the investment process. While front-end due diligence and underwriting ensures quality project offerings for foreign investors, our back-end review process holds project developers accountable and promotes operational excellence. To confirm that all funds are being spent judiciously, monies are held in an escrow account and released to the developer on a draw schedule based upon their project needs. Our detailed fund control is managed by a construction specialist to ensure that every dollar spent is in line with the original project plans and will create the requisite number of jobs. Additionally, once the project is fully funded and operational, our staff conducts a monthly review process that evaluates hiring, operating reserves, income statements, balance sheets, reports from managers, marketing and sales metrics. Our operational review is conducted on a monthly basis until the business reaches stabalization, at which time, the reviews will be done quarterly.
