• China may be in the middle of a growth slowdown, but its investors will find a way to keep pumping money into the United States over the next decade, according to a new report.

In fact, the deceleration of China’s economy may be one of the primary factors driving up investment in countries like the U.S., according to the study from the Asia Society and Rosen Consulting Group. Released on Monday, the report projected that Chinese direct investment “across existing U.S. commercial real estate assets and residential purchases” could hit at least $218 billion from 2016 through 2020 — and that’s excluding new development projects.
