Cross Border Investment

RHG’s cross border investment team analyzes the rise of China, India and other emerging markets as trans-national investors.  Outbound emerging market direct investment and portfolio capital streams bring immediate implications for global deal flow and pricing, portfolio allocation, and international competition in many industries. Our global capital flow analysis takes a multidisciplinary approach emphasizing aggregate quantitative data grounded in deep assessment of the political economy of deals and frequent interaction with executives and regulators.

Research Director Thilo Hanemann leads RHG’s cross border investment coverage. Thilo is a regular media commentator on emerging markets outward investment trends and has published widely on the topic.  He is co-author (with RHG China practice leader Dan Rosen) of the definitive work on Chinese investment in the US – An American Open Door? Maximizing the Benefits of Chinese FDI in the United States (2011). Thilo is the creator of the China Investment Monitor, RHG’s path-breaking interactive web-portal for understanding Chinese direct investment in the United States.
