The Bank of Israel reports that overseas investment by Israelis totaled $6.2 billion in January-April 2007, including $2 billion invested in securities, and $825 million in foreign direct investment.
Total overseas investment by Israelis is projected to total $18 billion in 2007, considerably less than the $30 billion in overseas investment in 2006. Financial establishment sources do not believe that it will be possible to repeat last year’s record any time soon.
