CFIUS and Foreign Direct Investment

Successfully navigate CFIUS and FDI requirements 

Many countries—including the US, most of the EU and a majority of developing economies—have national security regimes for foreign investment. Motivated by geopolitical tensions and concerns about technology, data, and security, governments are increasing their scrutiny, particularly on companies appearing to pose a threat. These measures have broad impact and can change with little notice. 

Control Risks has over 45 years of experience providing expertise and insight on matters relating to international trade, investment and national security. We support investors by evaluating their exposure, reducing transaction execution risk, maximising the value of the investment, and ensuring ongoing compliance with any commitments made to governments.
