The Globalization of RE Capital Will Continue
With Michael Schwartz of RSM

As you look ahead, will interest in U.S. property continue among foreign investors?

Michael Schwartz, RSM US LLP:
It will continue to stay strong. And that is because a lot of foreign investors are somewhat closed in their own markets.

But you’re seeing a huge investment of folks who have—the Chinese obviously have been very active. Singapore—the government of Singapore sovereign wealth fund—has been very active. Abu Dhabi has been very active in both the U.S. and Canada and other foreign players, so they’re seeing the U.S. as more stable. You’re seeing, of course, the gateway cities have always been hot—over the last number of years, New York, Boston, D.C., San Francisco and L.A. and you’re now seeing investments in other cities such as Miami by these foreign players.

2017 will be interesting. Will they continue at this rate? I think they will. But a lot of it may be hinging upon where the new administration is going to play in the world markets.
