Foreign direct investment report

Guest edited by

For the first time ever, foreign direct investment (FDI) into emerging markets has outstripped FDI into developed countries. 2012 saw developing regions attract $703 billion in inbound investment, compared to $561 billion in the developed world. While the risk-reward profile of countries are changing, so too are investment frameworks. Protectionist policies are on the rise, national security review processes are increasingly opaque, and tax incentives are changing. Regulatory intervention in FDI – be it through foreign investment approval, merger clearance or government policy – has also never been greater.

Garrett Hayes Partner, London Paul Hastings Confirmed contributors

Local practice and legal requirements continue to evolve, often in ways not obvious to foreign investors but which are critical to their operations. It means that institutions looking to expand overseas must navigate an increasingly complex web of legal and practical considerations. IFLR’s inaugural Foreign Direct Investment Report will provide clarification on information critical to these investors and their counsel. Conducted on a global basis, it will offer insight into the different review procedures, common pitfalls for newly established local operations, inconsistencies between the laws of the countries involved, as well as an overview of current practice in the markets that matter most to you. Guest edited by Garrett Hayes, partner at Paul Hastings, the results will be published as a dedicated supplement with the December/January issue of IFLR. It will provide readers with: •

Comprehensive cross-jurisdictional insight At-a-glance overview of each featured jurisdiction Highlighting significant local risk factors Facilitating an easy comparison of territories Contributions from local law experts Concise guidance on local law Offered by firms recommended to IFLR by our international partners See overleaf for your invitation Expert analysis from leading international practitioners See right for confirmed contributors
