WHO WE ARE

Consulting firm for corporate investment in Europe

‘Corporate Investment Europe’ is a consulting firm for corporate investments in Europe, exclusively for corporations. We advice on the best strategic way forward, either ‘mergers & acquisitions’ or ‘greenfield investments’.  In case of existing regional operations, we help to identify the most appropriate restructurization opportunities. For ‘greenfield investments’ we develop a complete & objective and high quality benchmark study among existing opportunities in terms of best corporate location.  If desired, we  engage also in early stage operational investment activities.  In case of  ‘M&A’ requests, we evaluate regional & sectorial opportunities and enable communication between the potential buyer and seller without the need for ‘ an identification of the parties’ in the early stages of the process. We are located close to the European Parlement and offer a strong network with EU representatives, allowing us to enter into discussion with authorities from all European countries on either the existing corporate environment in the country, or the environment that should exist, if an investment is to be attracted to this country.

INVEST IN EUROPE ?

The USA, Europe, South-East Asia…all are strong economic performers in terms of GDP (nominal)…and Europe has a larger GDP than China . When correcting for variations in regional purchasing prices (PPP), the total buying power exceeds even the one of the USA, while China is able to match Europe.  

However the population in Asia is much larger as compared to the USA and Europe.
