Our experts can assist clients with foreign direct investment screening.
Increasingly complex foreign investment patterns and the emergence of new providers of foreign direct investments, in particular state-owned or state-affiliated entities, has caused increased focus on the importance of conducting foreign direct investment (FDI) screening.
Whether in the context of an outright acquisition, or the amassing of a substantial stake in a listed company, such FDI can be of significance due to security, political, and corruption or reputational risks.
