In the past decade, the value of cross-border direct investment has grown substantially, to the point where global inward investment flows now approach US$1.2 trillion. There are also more than 2,800 bilateral investment treaties, many of them “south-south”. We at CLOUT handle all matters related to Financial Direct Investments and ensure that the client’s rights are well-protected. We advise clients who wish to invest both in the UAE and internationally.
According to Forbes, the UAE attracted US$10.4 billion in Foreign Direct Investment in 2018, the largest FDI in the Arab region for that period. As such, the UAE government is aware of the importance of Foreign Direct Investments to their economy. It an attempt to attract and encourage foreign direct investment in the UAE, the government issued ‘Federal Decree Law no. 19/2018 on Foreign Direct Investment’ which allowed an increased level of foreign ownership by non UAE and GCC nationals in certain companies and sectors in the economy.
Nevertheless, our investment practice is not limited to Foreign Direct Investments in the UAE but also includes, investments made by local and GCC member in the UAE as well as investments made in all other jurisdictions.
