Market Access Solutions
Foreign Direct Investment services for market and efficiency seeking investors and inward investment agencies looking to attract investment.
We have capabilities across EMEA and advise clients on how to access some of the more challenging developing economies in Africa and CIS. We advise on developing trends in FDI, which locations are under-subscribed or gaining in prominence and which are considered pioneering destinations for investment.
For foreign direct investors - whether considering investments as a means to gain access to resources, reduce costs, or enjoy growth in new markets, we guide corporates through the foreign direct investment process - initial investment vehicle assessment, potential M&A targets, business and operating climate and regulation, business incorporation, tax structure, turn-key market entry solutions, greenfield / brownfield options, site selection and due diligence.
For investment promotion agencies and regional / national governments - with our track record of advising the private sector on global location strategy, we are uniquely positioned to assist public sector inward investment bodies seeking to develop and refine strategies for attracting foreign direct investment.
Our services include:
- Location benchmarking: assessing competitive advantages/disadvantages of a location against competing destinations
- Investor targeting: matching a location’s competencies to the appropriate target industries, functions and ultimately companies
- Information & marketing resources: correctly identifying and articulating the market message and how to get the message across to the target market through appropriate channels (internet, articles, dialogue with industry peers, visits to corporate executives etc.)
- Investor support services: by bridging the understanding and cultural divide between the development authority and investor, we advise on how development agencies can better understand their target market and thereby implement best practice policies and frameworks to attract, retain and support FDI. Support services range from providing a one-stop shop for administrative requests, permits and applications; to efficient handling process for information requests; to providing accurate topographic maps; to providing dedicated project resources from project inception to completion to aftercare.
