Spanish outward investment is growing again after a period when disinvestments exceeded investments

In the aftermath of a long recession at home, during which top Spanish multinationals shed foreign-held assets to reduce debt levels, Spanish companies are investing abroad again. However, such investments can be impaired by adverse actions taken by host-state governments through sudden or gradual changes in law or policy. In those instances, it essential for investors to know their rights and remedies under the international legal framework of investment protections.
Almost two-thirds of the total revenue of the blue chip Ibex-35 companies are now generated abroad. Most of the investment abroad was made in the last 25 years, and that gave rise to a core group of home-grown multinationals with significant positions in the global market. Leading the group have been large construction and infrastructure companies such as OHL, FCC and Ferrovial, as well as other players, namely BBVA, Inditex, Santander, Telefónica, Repsol, Iberdrola, and others. Latin America was a natural first choice for Spanish companies wishing to expand abroad, but more recently the wave of investment has expanded to include a variety of established and emerging markets.
While infrastructure projects abroad remain highly attractive to Spanish companies, other sectors are catching the attention of investors with an appetite for growth. However, business growth abroad, not matter how mature the investor and markets are, remains a rocky road of political and regulatory risk.
The authors of the new book INVERSIONES ESPAÑOLAS EN EL EXTRANJERO: MECANISMOS DE PROTECCIÓN, Arif H. Ali, José Luis Iriarte Ángel, and José María Viñals Camallonga, and other legal experts and business leaders will discuss the international legal framework of investment protections for expanding business and managing risk abroad.
