Breaking Records: Chinese Outbound Property Investments Pass $100 Billion

Written On August 17, 2017

Juwai has released its Chinese Global Property Investment Report which noted that Chinese investors spent over $100 billion on outbound real estate investments in 2016. Up 25% compared to 2015 and up 845% over the previous five years, this record breaking trend has been fuelled by heavy interest in properties located in the US, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, and the UK.

With the additional foreign buyer taxes, restrictions on the transfer of oversees capital in China, and the possibility of a slowing Chinese economy, the trend is expected to decrease in 2017 but still remain among the top three years recorded.
