Which factors led to an increase in trade and FDI after WW2?

I assume that by FDI, you mean “foreign direct investment.”In my opinion, the end of WWII led to an increase in these things because of the fact that the United States was so much more economically powerful than any other country on earth.  Of all the major developed countries, only the United States was not devastated by the war.  Therefore, it had lots of excess money and was able to use it to buy products from other countries and to invest in those countries.I would say that the Cold War also had an impact as it made the US wish to invest to prevent other countries from getting closer to the USSR.Finally, I would say that the Bretton Woods system helped make FDI and trade more predictable and less risky.
