A net of experts for the USA

The EAIC - European American Investment Council - helps European companies enter and expand their business successfully in the USA

In a globally interconnected world, cross-border and transatlantic investments have become a day-to-day business. Greenfield investments as well as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) abroad offer a competitive advantage, hence expansions into new markets. Europe is by far the most important foreign direct investment (FDI) partner of the USA. In 2015 60% of FDI to the U.S. came from Europe. However, to make a market-entry or expansion in the United States a success, a profound legal, financial and political knowledge of the host country is necessary.
