Asian capital remained active in overseas markets in H1 2016. Chinese groups were particularly lively, accounting for around 60% of total outbound investment, led by insurance firms.

The Americas continued to attract the largest share of Asian outbound investment. New York overtook London as the top city destination for Asian capital.

Experienced investors are increasingly exploring alternative sectors such as student housing. Hospitality assets are also receiving stronger interest.

More investors are purchasing portfolios. Five of the top ten Asian outbound transactions in H1 2016 were portfolio deals.
