Exchange ratesFOREIGN investors are snapping up shares in Spanish companies.

A surge of foreign interest means shareholders from overseas now control a massive 43% of shares listed in Spain.

That is the highest level of foreign investment ever seen in Spain and represents a 7% increase since the crisis begun in 2007 and is double the amount invested from abroad 20 years ago.

In 2014, 64% of share deals were generated outside Spain and overseas sales accounted for 264,000 million.

  1. Are’nt the Spanish lucky -virtually all our utilities once owned completely by the general population are now owned and controlled by foreigners who could’nt give a s~#- about the people, who rig the prices of water/gas and electricity, trains and airports and have almost from the beginning owned most of our oil fields – like I said, lucky Spanish.
