High-growth markets: manage your risks

  1. 1.       High­growth markets may have captured the world’s attention, but the risk/reward ratio remains incredibly high. The  economic, legal and political influences in these investment hot spots make for an unpredictable environment.  Investors need to juggle local requirements and legalities with the expectations of their shareholders.     Our team can help you understand, manage and reduce the risks when you invest in a high­growth market. Each  investment is different and warrants a bespoke approach, but we’ve uncovered five recurring themes that any  investor should consider before they make their move:  take full advantage of available international investment treaties;• use creative strategies to combat ‘creative’ taxes;• build risk resistance into your deal; • protect your investment against bribery and corruption; and• plan for the unexpected with competition policies and regimes. • Risk­resistant foundations Context is everything. We do a ‘risk first’ analysis upfront to identify the best solution, including an exit strategy, to  help clients shape their deals. We combine diverse strategies to form risk­resistant foundations, made to measure  for each investment.  Always on watch Trends can cross borders with alarming speed. A surprise tax introduced by a government in one country might  swiftly be copied in another and cascade further if it seems successful. We monitor these waves and constantly  adjust our approach so that our design process addresses the latest identifiable threats.  Unparalleled experience Because we're home to many of the world's leading legal practitioners, with an award­winning international tax  team, an arbitration group that has acted on double the number of investment disputes of any other law firm and an  M&A team that has done more cross­border deals than its competitors, we're able to offer something few firms can:  front­line experience, across continents, across disciplines, across decades.  For more information  To learn more about our work in high growth markets please contact one of the partners featured on this page or  Sally Anderson  Crisis management Global investigations High­growth markets Recovery and resolution planning        High­growth markets: manage your risks 'Our team can help  you understand,  manage and reduce  the risks when you  invest in a high­ growth market.'
