The Global Corporate Advisor – February 2014

Welcome to the February issue of the Global Corporate Advisor. This issue contains an overview of infrastracture, real estate, and public-private partnerships in the BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia, India, and China. While the four countries are on their way to becoming the most powerful economies in the world, they are at different stages of development in various sectors. The issue also contains an article on debt restructuring in Ireland, and Spain, presented by Loreta Calero Perez and Naoise Cosgrove, partners at Crowe Horwath Spain and Ireland respectively. We examine the background of and reaction to the banking crises in Ireland and Spain and the opportunities that now exist to invest in those economies. Crowe Horwath offices have played a central role in assisting financial institutions and borrowers in dealing with financial distress and debt structuring.
