CityWatch | Rising Atlanta
Our research team has analyzed more than 4,000 cities and identified the top 2% we believe are best positioned to benefit from global megatrends. Atlanta is one of these cities:
Atlanta is well positioned for COVID-19 recovery, due to strong net migration, low projected unemployment, low concentration of small business employment and a relatively stable fiscal outlook.
Atlanta added almost 718,000 residents from 2010 to 2019, the fourth-fastest-growing U.S. metro area.
15 Fortune 500 companies are globally headquartered in Atlanta, including Coca-Cola, The Home Depot and Delta Air Lines. High-tech employment grew at least 3% per year from 2011 to 2016.
Emory University and Georgia Tech comprise more than 41,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
The Atlanta Beltline is a 22-mile transportation corridor used by about 2 million people per year, luring more than $6.2 billion in private construction investment.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport claims to be one of the busiest in the world, serving more than 100 million passengers per year since 2015.

A word on risk
Real estate investments are subject to various risks, including fluctuations in property values, higher expenses or lower income than expected, and potential environmental problems and liability. Please consider all risks carefully prior to investing in any particular strategy. A portfolio’s concentration in the real estate sector makes it subject to greater risk and volatility than other portfolios that are more diversified and its value may be substantially affected by economic events in the real estate industry. International investing involves risks, including risks related to foreign currency, limited liquidity particularly where the underlying asset comprises real estate, less government regulation in some jurisdictions, and the possibility of substantial volatility due to adverse political, economic or other developments.
