The Japanese Overseas Investment Report 2017

International Financial Law Review (IFLR) has published the report that provides simple, accessible analysis of the key regulations for Japanese acquirers and their advisors. Report is available in both, English and Japanese.

While the US continues to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) from Japanese corporates, the UK’s vote to leave the EU last June and the upcoming elections in France and Italy have made Japanese corporates more cautious about investment in Europe. /Brian Yap, IFLR/

 

North America, Europe and Southeast Asia have emerged as the top three regions targeted by Japanese investors, with 38 deals worth $133 billion out of the total having been completed in North America, 29 in Europe and 14 in Southeast. /Brian Yap, IFLR/
