India has lost out to China by a wide margin in terms of its demand as an attractive market for the wealthy and affluent American investors, who are casting their net beyond the U.S. in search of better returns, says a study.

According to the study conducted by U.S. based strategic consulting firm Spectrum group, two of every five affluent households in the U.S. expect to invest or continue investing in overseas markets. India could find only the fourth position on their radar while China has emerged as the most appealing overseas destination for the affluent American investors.

According to the survey, focused on the affluent markets, nearly one third of the people said that they have increased their foreign investments from the past, while an equal number of people are planning to increase their overseas investment in the future.

The report says that the areas that appealed most to them are China (30 percent), Europe (20 percent), Japan (12 percent), and India (11 percent).

Parking money in the international market has emerged as the most popular option over hedge funds, venture capital, private placements and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).
