Control of Funds

Before an investment is made, the individual must have possession and control of the capital assets.  The investor should be able to document the legitimate means by which he or she accumulated funds for the investment.  Legitimate sources of funds include savings, gifts, inheritance, etc.  However, an individual cannot apply for an E2 claiming an inherited business as the investment.  Furthermore, the source of the funds need not be outside the United States.

The investor may use a loan to invest in the enterprise.  However, the loan must be secured by the investor’s own personal assets, such as a second home mortgage, or an unsecured loan (such as a loan on the investor’s personal signature).  The investor may not use the enterprise as collateral for a loan.
