Glass Half Full: The 2017 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index - A.T. Kearney
The United States tops the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Confidence Index for the fifth year in a row. This streak ties with the longest prior run that the United States had at the top of the Index (ending in 2001), and likely reflects the enduring attractiveness of the US market in terms of sheer size and a relatively open regulatory environment for foreign investment. Investors may also be motivated by protectionist rhetoric, as FDI would give them a local footprint in the world’s largest economy. In addition, investors have a very bullish outlook for the North American economy—with the United States and Canada the two domestic economies about which investors are most optimistic this year compared with last year. It is thus no surprise that Canada rounds out the top five in this year’s Index.
