Asia on the Buyside: The Key to Success – The human capital and hidden risks in cross-border acquisitions.
Economists the world over
agree that Asia will drive global
economic growth over the
next ten years, if not longer.
According to the IMF, the
region’s economies will grow
by 7.5% in 2010, and are likely
to continue to accelerate through
2011 and beyond.
In stark contrast, growth in the
advanced economies is expected
to hit just 2.6% in 2010, just over
one third of what is predicted
During March and April 2010, 155 senior executives of Asian based corporations and private equity firms that had undertaken a cross-border acquisition over the past three years were asked about their views on the risk management and human capital issues that impacted the success of their purchase.
