The following chart illustrates the historical U.S. investments in Korea since 2003. Before the financial crisis in 2008, the average annual U.S. investment in Korea was approximately $5 billion dollars per year. When the financial crisis occurred in 2008, the U.S. financial institutions withdrew more than $10 billion dollars from Korea. However, the waves turned back in 2009, and the U.S. began to invest heavily starting from 2009 to 2011 because of the Quantitative Easing implementation by the Federal Reserve. The total U.S net investment between the years 2009-2011 is approximately $38 billion dollars. The amount of U.S. investments in Korea sharply declined in 2012, but gradually increased to an estimated $10 billion dollars in 2014. Since 2009, U.S. has been investing a total of $47.6 billion dollars in Korea.
