The US maybe losing its rank as a safe haven for foreign capital. According to experts at the Los Angeles Headquarters Association’s Capital Idea: Financing Development in L.A., Asian investment in Los Angeles has slowed this year; however, the US is still an attractive place for investment and the slowdown isn’t expected to affect MSA pricing.

“So far in 2017, Asian capital flows into real estate have slowed, especially in development,” Randy Zisler, CEO of Zisler Capital Associates, tells GlobeSt.com in an interview following the panel discussion. “Asian capital flows into L.A. and San Francisco as a share of total MSA commercial transactions volume has increased from 2010-2014 to 2016-2017, but the current percentage is still small—5.7% in L.A. and 7.4% in San Francisco—but is unlikely to affect MSA pricing.
