Dubai, UAE– Dubai- based Ellis Island Capital (EIC) announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with US-based Baker Tilly Capital, a wholly owned subsidiary of Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP, a top 15 accounting and advisory firm in the United States.

The companies partnered in order to further grow historically underdeveloped EB-5 markets outside of China – both within the EB-5 Investor Program, as well as related non-EB-5 fund raising activities and select advisory offerings. Both firms’ leaders expect this strategic partnership to improve investor confidence and widen EIC’s available service offerings. In addition to EB-5 placement, EIC will now feature a host of Baker Tilly services – including select investment offerings, tax compliance, and tax filing. In turn, the inclusion of EIC into the Baker Tilly Capital network further solidifies Baker Tilly’s status as a globally positioned, premier advisor for EB-5 investment opportunities.

According to Jonathan Matzner, Founder of Ellis Island Capital, “A partnership with Baker Tilly International – with 126 member firms, presence in 147 countries, and 769 office locations – allows us to continue our aggressive growth in the emerging markets.  Baker Tilly’s status as a register broker dealer and member of FINRA further supports EIC’s objective of bringing transparency and institutionalization to the EB-5 program”.

More information is expected to be released from both firms in Fall 2017.
