Investment Language 101 Series: TERM OF THE DAY: -- What is ' Green Field Investment ' | E.21 | Trading Candle Cheat Sheet Incl. Each Episode.

in money •  5 days ago


A series designed to help all the new people flooding into & entering Crypto/Investments daily who get thrown into the rabbit hole so to speak and everything is new to them.

It is a TLDR / Short Form Series, covering ONLY one thing each episode in blue collar, easy to understand language to give a SHORT OVERVIEW of the term or lesson of the day.

It is specifically designed this way to keep it short and simple.

People can then search out extra info if they wish.

I've never seen a regular series or resource running on Steemit to continually address this basic need so I decided to do it.


TERM OF THE DAY:


What is....

' Green Field Investment '?

--

A green field investment is a form of foreign direct investment where a parent company builds its operations in a foreign country from the ground up. In addition to the construction of new production facilities, these projects can also include the building of new distribution hubs, offices and living quarters.

Breaking Down...

' Green Field Investment ':

--

As opposed to a brown field investment, where leasing existing facilities and land results in relatively lower expenses, green field investments forwarded by multinational corporations entail higher risks and higher costs associated with building new factories or manufacturing plants.

Developing countries tend to attract prospective companies with offers of tax breaks, subsidies and other incentives to set up green field investments. While these concessions may result in lower corporate tax revenues in the short term, the economic benefits and the enhancement of local human capital can deliver positive returns over the long term.

The term "green field investment" refers to a project where a company builds the entirety of its operations in a foreign market starting from scratch, or a so-called green field. These projects are foreign direct investments that provide the highest degree of control for the sponsoring company. In these projects, the company’s plant construction is done to its own specifications, employees are trained to company standards and fabrication processes can be tightly controlled. This type of involvement is completely different than indirect investments, where companies may have little or no control in operations, quality control, sales and training.

Risks of Green Field Investments:

As a long-term commitment, one of the greatest risks in green field investment is the relationship with the host country. Any circumstances or events that result in the company pulling out of a project at any time can be financially devastating.

Smaller risks include construction overruns, problems with permitting, difficulties in accessing resources and issues with local labor. Companies contemplating green field projects typically invest large sums of time and money in advance research to determine feasibility and cost-effectiveness.

Examples of Green Field Projects:

In April 2015, Toyota announced its first green field project in Mexico in three years, a $1.5 billion manufacturing plant in Guanajuato. The factory is scheduled to open in 2019 with 2,000 employees and capacity to produce 200,000 cars per year. In total, Mexico attracted 366 green field investment projects in 2014, due in large part to the low costs of labor and manufacturing in the country, as well as its proximity to markets in the United States.

I am leaving these images I made here until I figure out one that fits properly and looks right for the first/main image for the post/series.

Since Steemit dev's changed the size of the picture frame that shows, it has honestly been a real problem getting images to match the screen, it was perfectly fine months ago before they messed around with it.

SMH.

Please note -- I will have limited internet access for awhile -- so PLEASE do not be upset that I cannot reply right away, or to everyone. I am dealing with some changes, and will have limited time online and will be happy if I get a few blog posts up a week.
This has really upset some people but I do not force my opinions on others, or need to communicate every detail of my life or issues, most people do not care anyways. I invested around 10 hours or more a day on Steemit most of my first 13 mths here, trying to build community, put out content and engage people, help and donate to people, and I just do not have that time in my life right now, and that includes for replies and voting/curation.
I have done my best, sorry if you do not understand like some are clearly having a problem with. It's a blogging platform, and I will do my best at everything, and to keep blogging.
Carry On.
