This paper seeks to extend the findings regarding factors that affect Canadian propensity to undertake direct investment abroad by examining the perception of risk factors that may hinder direct investment in the Indian real estate market. This study utilized survey research (a non-experimental field study design). 226 Canadian investors were surveyed and reported their perceptions of various risk factors regarding investing in the Indian real estate market. The findings suggest that perceptions of political and legal nature, corruption, confiscation, and economic risk can hinder investments and may lead to capital losses on investments in the Indian real estate market. We also found that investors’ foreign direct investment behavior does not differ based on their age and the level of education. This paper discusses several techniques by which investors can mitigate foreign direct investment risk in India. It also points out how real estate investors can implement these techniques and the challenges that they might face through this implementation process. Finally, some suggestions to overcome these challenges are provided.
