Real Capital Analytics headquarters at 110 Fifth Ave., New York City RCA headquarters in Manhattan’s Midtown South; the firm says cross-border investors’ market share declined by 23% last year.

NEW YORK CITY—Surveying the universe of investors that predominated last year, Real Capital Analytics calls 2017 “the year of private capital sources.” This class of investors was behind approximately 50% of all $467.5 billion worth of acquisitions for the year, according to RCA, even if their share of dollar volume was achieved with smaller deals than those of any other investor class.
