Definition: Disinvestment

Foreign direct investment

Disinvestment is the withdrawal of direct investment capital. The most frequent cases are where inter-company debt (e.g. a loan) is paid back or where the direct investor sells participation (e.g. shares) it had invested in the direct investment enterprise.
