Capital outflows as much as US$800 billion has been estimated to have streamed out of China last year – and Chinese overseas property investment is predicted to rise in tandem, reports (24 July 2015). According to Co-CEO Andrew Taylor, cashed-up Chinese tend to allocate 10% - 15% of their total wealth to property investments abroad, and states that as overseas investment grows, so too would property investment abroad. “The long-term picture is of a country with increasing wealth playing a greater role in international property markets. Whatever happens in the course in the short term won’t change that,” says Taylor.
