American commercial real estate has been recognized globally as a sound and highly desirable investment opportunity. Foreign investors are buying up US commercial properties at a greater rate than ever before. While many are wealthy investors, the upper middle class have learned that by pooling their cash they too can reap the rewards of investing in commercial properties.

Key Takeaways:

  • China Life Insurance Group Co. recently purchased a $1.65 billion Manhattan office tower on Sixth Avenue; Anbang Insurance Group Co.
  • a 19 percent year-over-year increase in investment by China in U.S. commercial real estate for the first half of 2016.
  • Marketplace lending, also known as a peer-to-peer platform, gives foreign investors the opportunity to get involved in the financial side of commercial real estate
