“The strength of CanAm as a leader among EB-5 regional centers is in the talent and attention we devote to each and every investor,” Gindin said, adding that the skills of CanAm’s staff are integrated into the work behind every CanAm project and investment. “We build trust with our investors by managing all phases of the EB-5 process. We work closely with our investors to try to provide them the peace of mind they deserve,” he said.
