U.S. Inbound & Outbound Investment Trends Snapshot | H1 2018

October 22, 2018


Capital Surplus For U.S. Commercial Real Estate


More capital crossed U.S. borders in both directions during H1 2018, with foreign inflow up by 29% from H1 2017 and U.S. outflow up by 15%. On net, the U.S. commercial real estate market had a capital surplus of roughly $12 billion. Savvy foreign investors have several strategies to mitigate foreign exchange risk when acquiring U.S. assets, one of which is purchasing forward contracts to hedge against U.S. dollar depreciation. 

French company Unibail-Rodamco’s acquisition of Westfield, which included a $7.7 billion shopping mall portfolio, elevated inbound capital flows from REITs and France, as well as foreign retail acquisitions, to record highs.
