OCO INSIGHT: A New Investment Paradigm
OCO Global (7-21-2009)

OCO Consulting's most recent OCO Insight publication, entitled a "A New Investment Paradigm," explores the major transitions under way in the FDI market, brought about in part by the economic crises and its resulting impact on FDI volumes. The authors contend that significant challenges exist in determining how to respond to these FDI market changes given the many variables currently in play, ranging from slower investment decisions, upheaval in core sectors and markets, new forms of investment, and heightened pressure to deliver economic recovery and jobs from a depleted pool of FDI. This review examines these issues and reflects on how to address the challenges.
