The U.S. continues to see persistent investment streams from foreign investors, but the players are changing, as are the target assets. At Commercial Observer’s Financing Forum in Los Angeles, lenders and equity investors discussed which markets are drawing the most attention from overseas capital, and the challenges they face today.
Nobu Hirabayashi, a managing director of Diamond Realty Management America, leads both equity and debt activities in the U.S. for the firm, an affiliate of Japan-based Mitsubishi. Diamond Realty is pursuing multiple strategies on the equity side he said, particularly with core and core-plus funds. Hirabayashi said that although growth is slowing in the U.S., it still presents more investment opportunities than Japan does.
