WAVTEQ Limited has made an equity investment in Research Consultants International FDI, Inc. to create the world's largest Lead Generation Group with a global team of 75 lead generation consultants.

The partnership between two of the fastest growing companies in the industry combines WAVTEQ's pan-Asia and pan-Europe lead generation teams with Research Consultants International North and South America teams. The new Group will provide a seamless service to our economic development clients allowing them to target all the major source countries worldwide for inward investment.

According to Dr Henry Loewendahl, Group CEO of WAVTEQ, "We are incredibly excited about bringing Research Consultants International FDI Inc. into our Lead Generation Group. The combination of Research Consultants International's large and rapidly growing consulting team in North and South America with our Asia and Europe companies will provide economic development organizations with genuine global delivery capability for the first time. Research Consultants International FDI Inc. have a fantastic track record and reputation in the market and we look forward to working together to deliver more investment for our clients!"

According to Bruce Takefman, President of Research Consultants International FDI, Inc. "We could not be more thrilled to create the first truly worldwide FDI consultancy alongside Dr. Loewendahl and the WAVTEQ team. Our clients from North America will have access to global investment projects from all over the world and have access to the top business intelligence products in the market today including fdi365, FDI Professionals, FDI Accounting and IncentivesMonitor. Our new global consortium will allow our clients the ability to actively recruit all over the world and access to valuable international business intelligence".
