Cross-border acquisitions of U.S. commercial real estate retreated below $50 billion in 2019, to the lowest level in five years, the latest edition of the US Cross-Border Investment Compendium shows. Overseas investors were behind just 8% of U.S. deal volume for the year, down from a high of 18% in 2015.
Canadian players were the dominant investor group in 2019, accounting for about one-quarter of cross-border deal activity. Still, their spending dropped 71% from 2018, when a slew of entity-level deals took place. German investors came in the second position.
