Foreign Property Investors Hedge Bets Declining as U.S. Interest Rates Dip

CBRE | July 16, 2019

According to CBRE, with the sharp drop in U.S. interest rates in 2019, the differential between U.S. rates and those in countries with lower-yielding foreign currencies has narrowed, contributing to lower hedging costs for foreign investors acquiring U.S. dollar-denominated assets. Across eight major global currencies, the annual cost of hedging against U.S. dollar (US$) depreciation has decreased year-to-date for all but the Australian dollar (AU$). Except for Chinese (CNY) investors, who are the only ones in this group to achieve a boost in IRR when purchasing an asset in US$ and hedging back to local currency at current forward exchange rates, Canadian (C$) investors currently have the lowest hedging costs. The largest decreases year-to-date have been for Japanese (JPY) and Singaporean (SG$) investors.
