Foreign firm investment reaches record

Foreign firms invested €18bn in Dutch companies in the second quarter of this year, the highest quarterly figure ever, says the Dutch central bank DNB.

There is an ‘unusually large increase’ in foreign investment in Dutch firms, DNB said, referring to the merger between Euronext and the New York stock exchange and the takeover of Rodamco Europe by Unibail.
DNB said the high level of foreign investment was set to continue, because a number of other major deals are in the offing, including the takeover of ABN Amro.
