Not all U.S. cities have the same lure for cross-border investors. The New York City metro area pulls in a larger share of cross-border volume in the U.S. than it does overall U.S. investment volume. It accounts for 15% of U.S. cross-border deal activity versus 11% of total activity. The DC metro area also punches above its weight in terms of attracting cross-border capital.
Los Angeles has a nearly equal share of cross-border activity versus total U.S. investment activity; the Chicago and Boston major metros also pull in roughly balanced shares.
Dallas and Houston present an interesting dynamic on relative slices of activity. Dallas captured 4% of all U.S. deal activity but only 3% of cross-border activity. Houston has these figures reversed.
