The U.S. net international investment position at the end of the third quarter of 2014 was -$6,157.9 billion (preliminary) as the value of U.S. liabilities exceeded the value of U.S. assets (chart 1, table 1). At the end of the second quarter of 2014, the net position was -$5,475.4 billion (revised). The $682.5 billion decrease in the net position reflected a $362.4 billion decrease in the value of U.S. assets and a $320.2 billion increase in the value of U.S. liabilities.
The U.S. net international investment position decreased 12.5 percent in the third quarter, compared with an increase of 0.7 percent in the second quarter and an average quarterly decrease of 7.0 percent from the first quarter of 2011 through the first quarter of 2014. The net position was equal to 3.1 percent of the value of all U.S. financial assets at the end of the third quarter, up from 2.8 percent at the end of the second quarter.1
