Abstract: This report describes the process to construct the foreign ownership dataset called FOWN. It includes three pieces of data: i) public and private firms located in Europe controlled by non-European investors, ii) Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) of firms located in Europe done by non-European investors, and iii) greenfield investments aiming at setting-up an installation in Europe by non-European investors. This document details the raw data used, the assumptions necessary to construct the dataset and limitations of FOWN.
