Welcome to Matheson's FDI Portal
 
International companies and financial institutions doing business in and through Ireland are the primary focus of our firm.
 
Reflecting this focus, we represent many of the Fortune 500, FT Global 500 and FT Euro 500 companies, including over half of the world's 50 largest banks and the majority of the Fortune 100 companies.
 
In 2012, we were pleased to announce our contribution to keeping Ireland at the forefront of FDI destinations for international business. We launched a Matheson-commissioned report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) on Ireland's unique selling proposition to international companies and financial institutions. In 2014, we launched another Matheson-commissioned report by the EIU on the most important factors for global asset managers when choosing a European fund domicile. After all, it is only by understanding the most important needs of our customers that we can ensure we meet those needs better than our competitors. This is as true for countries as it is for businesses.
