 About The Conference

As geopolitical concerns develop and spread volatility around the globe, US real estate is becoming an increasingly attractive asset class for international investors. iGlobal Forum was pleased to host our upcoming seminar, Raising Foreign Capital for US Real Estate in New York on November 16th, 2016, bringing together foreign investors and US asset managers and developers looking to raise capital and discuss available investment opportunities. Foreign direct investment has skyrocketed over the last several years, with the expectation that outside investment will double once again by 2020. These unmatched numbers of investments coming into the US from all over the world are pushing constant shifts in regulations, requiring both sides to keep up with compliance in FIRPTA and EB-5. International REIT investments are now becoming profitable through new tax exemptions, and as these investment types become available, asset managers have more options to attract foreign investors to their projects and find returns. This event provided an intimate discussion and networking-focused environment, bringing together senior level representatives from: international pension funds, foreign HNWIs, asset managers, private equity firms, REITs, regional centers, real estate developers, government agencies, law firms, and EB-5 consultants and agents.
