The US is a top landing pad for global investment capital. Thanks to a strong economy and dollar, the US is the top safe haven for investors as well as a market with strong yield potential. This year, foreign capital was among the most active investment pools, and in 2020, foreign capital activity is expected to remain a top driver of investment volumes.

“Overseas investors are another bucket of capital that layer into the pool. Interest rates overseas are negative in a lot of the primary countries, and investors are yield starved,” Mike Longo, SVP at CBRE, tells GlobeSt.com. “The US is perceived to be the number one safe haven globally and a place with more yield potential. With the influx of global capital and the US dollar as strong as it is, capital is really attractive to real estate as a safe bet that offers some yield premium. I think that you will continue to see that. As a result, we will continue to keep compression on cap rates and the best assets. Global capital is generally interested in the best markets and the most stable instruments.”
