Markets back to near record highs, pushing up corporate valuations in the process. Trade rhetoric between the U.S. and China also hovering around record highs.

Even still, the U.S. markets are seen as an opportunity by overseas investors explains CEO of International Goldman Sachs Asset Management Sheila Patel.

"It makes sense they are looking at U.S. markets," Patel tells TheStreet (TST) , pointing to solid economic growth in the U.S.

Patel focuses on EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) and Asia Pacific excluding Japan for her role within Goldman Sachs (GS) . Patel serves on the Asia Pacific Management Committee and Growth Markets Executive Committee for Goldman. 

"There is still a belief in U.S. markets but that said, there is a realization that there is some moderation. That means there is some opportunity, people are taking a closer look at Europe and with emerging markets taking a hit, I think you are starting to see people look for a rebound.

Patel adds, "There is not a lack of confidence that the U.S. equity story can continue for a bit longer."

Patel was recently elevated to Goldman's management committee by CEO successor David Solomon and retiring CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
