The recent global financial crisis has resulted in a 60% decline in cross-border capital flows from the peak in 2007. This, and the reaction of regulators around the world, is helping to create a new landscape for financial institutions and the pools of capital they control.
Already this change has resulted in significant increases in corporate bond issuance and foreign direct investment as well as a dramatic growth in capital flows to emerging markets and between “South-South” emerging markets.
This dynamic new market creates many opportunities for private equity, funds, sovereign wealth and other financial institutions. Our lawyers throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia are perfectly positioned to help you navigate this new paradigm, wherever you target capital flows in the world.
