fDi Markets tracks crossborder investment in a new physical project or expansion of an existing investment which creates new jobs and capital investment. Joint ventures are only included where they lead to a new physical operation. Mergers & acquisitions (M&A) and other equity investments are not tracked. There is no minimum size for a project to be included.

Data goes through a rigorous quality control process, before being published at the end of each month to Trends Analysis and reporting tools.

fDi Insights tracks information on capital investment and direct jobs associated with an FDI project.

As companies do not always release information on investment amount or job creation, a proprietary econometric model estimates the jobs and investment where the actual value is not known.

Each project tracked by fDi Insights is classified according to its cluster, sector, sub-sector and business activity, based on a proprietary industry classification system.
