UK and US most active foreign investors in Germany

MUNICH - The British and Americans are the largest foreign investors in the German property market, but their investment is declining relative to domestic players, according to a research report by DEGI. The majority of property investors in Germany are still, unsurprisingly, German, making up 37% of a total of EUR 41.2 bn property investment in Germany last year. The British were not far behind, however, being responsible for 29.7% (EUR 12.3 bn) of all property investments in 2005, followed by the US with 20.5% (EUR 8.5 bn).
