U.S. Inbound and Outbound Investment Trends Snapshot H1 2019

6 September, 2019
With the longest global economic expansion on record, international investors face an increasingly complex calculus in identifying cost-effective opportunities for potential downturn protection, slowing cross-border capital flows. Inbound capital to the U.S. in H1 2019 was down by 48% from H1 2018 (about half of this decline was due to less M&A activity), and U.S. outflows were down by 18%.
