DALLAS, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Civitas Capital Group, a leading independent specialty asset management and financial services firm with operating divisions focused on Alternative Investments, EB-5 Funds and Wealth Management, today announced that the United States Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) has approved the establishment of the Civitas Miami Regional Center.
Congress created the EB-5 Regional Center Pilot Program in 1992, facilitating residency and citizenship applications for foreign nationals willing to invest significant capital in the United States and create permanent, high-quality jobs in their locality. The Civitas Miami Regional Center will operate as an officially designated EB-5 regional center for the City and is expected to facilitate substantial and valuable economic development within Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.
Civitas' Chief Executive Officer Dan Healy said, "Underscoring everything that we do is the goal of becoming a trusted partner in finding quality investment opportunities tailored to the needs of global investors. The establishment of a Miami-based regional center builds off of our extensive foundation and strong reputation across the state of Texas. We're excited about this development and looking forward to deepening our relationship with top-tier developers throughout South Florida."
Through its EB-5 Funds division, Civitas is currently the manager of five Regional Centers throughout the United States, which have funded or are in the process of funding hundreds of millions of EB-5 capital and creating thousands of jobs in America. Civitas is also the exclusive EB-5 partner for several Texas cities, including Dallas, Fort Worth, Laredo, and El Paso.
"Foreign investors exploring opportunities under the EB-5 Program face unique needs," said Civitas' Managing Director Gabriel Hidalgo. "Civitas works hard to become their trusted partner by understanding their culture, goals, and concerns. Our financially and culturally savvy investment managers help bridge this gap while deploying rigorous screening and analysis to insure that only the highest quality investment opportunities are presented to our clients."
