Since the investment agreement deals with the underwriting of shares by investors in return for investment funds, the investment agreement should engage all participating investors, including all segregated funds that invest. If the investment in a life sciences company is realized, with the exception of IP guarantees, the remaining guarantees in their application will be quite limited due to the company`s limited business history. IP guarantees in life sciences investments, regardless of the phase of the business, are, in most cases, more detailed and important than others, because of the value, breadth and complexity of the IP they own or the products they want to create and/or develop. Guarantees are likely to be even more important if a life sciences company goes through a second or second investment cycle. The second era, from 1989 to the present day, is marked by a generally more welcoming feeling about foreign investment and a significant increase in the number of ILOs. This growth of the ILO was due, among other things, to the opening of many developing countries to foreign investment, which hoped that the conclusion of ILO would make it a more attractive destination for foreign companies. In the mid-1990s, three multilateral agreements were also concluded on investment issues in the Uruguay Round trade negotiations and on the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO). These included the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), the Trade-Related Investment Measures Agreement (TRIMS) and the Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights Agreement (TRIPS). In addition, PTIA, like regional, inter-regional or multilateral agreements, increased during this period, as illustrated by the conclusion of NAFTA in 1992 and the implementation of the ASEAN Framework Agreement on ASEAN Investments in 1998.

In general, these agreements have also begun to intensify investment liberalization. [11] However, the SAIs could enter a new era, as regional agreements such as the European Union, the North American Free Trade Agreement and dozens of existing or under-negotiated bilateral agreements will supplant traditional bilateral agreements. There are many examples of PTIAs. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is remarkable. While NAFTA addresses a very wide range of issues, including cross-border trade between Canada, Mexico and the United States, Chapter 11 of the agreement contains detailed foreign investment provisions similar to those contained in the ILO. [6] Other bilateral examples of PTIA are available in the JAPAN-Singapore EPA[7], in the Republic of Korea-Chile Free Trade Agreement[8] and in the U.S.-Australia Free Trade Agreement. [9] One of the main organizations dealing with the development dimension of AI is the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), which is the United Nations single window for issues related to IZURis and their development dimension. The organization`s IDU program supports developing countries in their efforts to participate effectively in the complex investment regulatory system. UNCTAD provides capacity-building services, is widely known for its analysis of research and policy on IDU, and is an important forum for intergovernmental discussions and consensus building on issues related to international investment law and international development. Most investments are available in cheques, cash or transfers. However, some investments are provided as tangible assets.

The treaty should show whether that is the case. In the case of tangible investments, you need to figure out how to continue the business if the investor requests that these assets be returned. Investment tranches are another unique component of investment agreements that allow investors to partially transfer investments to a company over time.
