ATLANTA-Although not listed as one of the top U.S. cities for attracting foreign investment, Atlanta is becoming a popular locale for international investment capital.

While New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Houston are among the top in the world for attracting foreign investment dollars, Atlanta is making its mark in the international arena as well, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

In 2012, Branch Properties LLC, a private real estate Atlanta-based company raised $49 million from German investors. In addition, Cortland Partners of Atlanta, whose capital partners hail from Israel and the Netherlands, purchased a $154-million multifamily portfolio in Texas and Florida.
