Direct Investment applies when the company chooses to open a branch by setting up its own premises or by acquiring a local company.
Direct investment has the following advantages for companies:
• Expand sales;
• Acquire resources;
• Minimize risks;
Direct investment abroad may take the following forms:
• Relocation of production: with the objective of obtaining labour and raw materials at lower prices;
• Commercial investment: aiming at greater control over the processes and reduction of the intermediaries in their relation with the external market;
• Business expansion: as a way to help penetrate certain markets. These branches do not only have commercial functions, but also product development, production engineering, production process, etc.
We guide our clients in the different stages of the process, covering the most different needs, both nationally and in the country where they wish to invest, namely:
• Development of business strategy and the way of entry into the country; creation of company or acquisition;
