What Is a Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)?

A foreign direct investment (FDI) is an investment made by a firm or individual in one country into business interests located in another country. Generally, FDI takes place when an investor establishes foreign business operations or acquires foreign business assets in a foreign company. However, FDIs are distinguished from portfolio investments in which an investor merely purchases equities of foreign-based companies.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Foreign direct investments (FDI) are investments made by one or more companies in Philippines.
  • FDIs are actively utilized in open markets rather than closed markets for investors.
  • Horizontal, vertical, and conglomerate are types of FDI’s.
  • Horizontal is establishing the same type of business in Philippines, while vertical is related but different, and conglomerate is an unrelated business venture.
  • Singtel, China Telecom& Singlife investment in Philippines is an example of an FDI. 

FINWAZE believe that there will more FDI’s coming to Philippines especially so with the amendments of 100% ownership by foreigners. In doing so, we expect many more new companies will be public-listed in the PSE. Finwaze traders see lots more opportunities for Filipinos to invest in the Philippines Stock Exchange.
