07/19/05: What do you call a country that has one billion people, a GDP growth rate of 8% and has attracted one-fifth of all Fortune 500 companies? You call it India. According to Dale Anne Reiss and Rahul Rai of E&Y, foreign investment in India is expected to hit $15 billion this year, triple the 2004 figure. Much of this is based on the country’s liberalization of guidelines allowing for direct foreign real estate investment. Local developers in need of capital are now on the hunt for new sources as the country’s economy continues to improve after decades of stagnation. And it seems that, despite the risks inherent in any foreign investment, it’s an intriguing play. According to E&Y, “Investors who are among the first to enter the market have the opportunity to establish a presence and realize high returns.” In other words, as the US real estate market continues to see prices surge with decreasing cap rates, India may be a great place to place capital.
