The U.S. exceeded $166 billion in capital investments in 2015, a ten percent increase from the year before. With almost a third of the proceeds coming from Texas, Dallas based real estate investor Marcus Hiles believes his state has not only displayed the potential for sustained long-term economic growth, but has also become vital to the success of the American economy. As Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Properties, Hiles has spent over three decades studying market tendencies in the pursuit of making profitable, strategic property acquisitions.
Venture investments are an important measure of economic growth, said Marcus Hiles, because the funds allow companies to hire more workers, buy new equipment, and ramp up product development and marketing. Capital firms in turn receive a considerable portion of the profits as promising young companies are sold or go public, and continue the cycle.
