The US and China’s share of global investments rose to 10% in 2018, a gain of nearly $1 trillion, according to a new report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
The report, which looks at investments made in China’s domestic market in the first half of the year, was released Monday.
The total investment by the world’s second-biggest economy rose 6.5% in the same period to $5.4 trillion.
China’s stock market has been in freefall for months, hitting a new record low last month, with investors selling off their holdings as the market tumbled more than 6% in January.
A number of countries are also struggling with a stock market crash, with Japan in particular losing around $2 trillion.
