GMV is an innovative investment consultant group based in Lisbon, Portugal. The company was founded in the year 2000, and throughout the following years, has been active in many areas of business, not only in Portugal, but worldwide, including the secondary and tertiary sectors (primarily metal mechanic, civil construction, engineering, architecture, marketing, accounting, information technology and finance).
Over the last four years GMV has serviced, partnered with, founded, acquired and financed, several businesses with the sole purpose of expanding our expertise and maintaining our belief in a global economic scope. This expansion has widened the geographic reach of the group beyond Portugal and into Spain, Malta, Brazil, USA and China and also, strengthened our commercial opportunities.
Maintaining our business model within the European reality, GMV will continue to gain more international market knowledge and will strive to achieve additional business goals and objectives. We will strengthen our network through practical business and venture approaches. GMV is an investor and will keep establishing new companies or acquiring equity on existing corporations, either as a financial or management partner.
Partnerships are the foundation of our investment strategy and consulting services. We work with clients and associates to ensure comprehensive risk-benefit analyses are understood by all parties. We personalize investments to associates’ specific expectations and our services are tailored to the each client's specific needs. We know that we can only achieve positive results if we join in the same believes.
The sovereign world crisis has impacted Europe and Portugal not only resulting in poor economic growth and financial difficulties, but also, after significant restructuring, enormous business advantages: cost efficient installed capability, highly qualified and accessible human resources, low investment in advanced and available technologic know-how, and many others. We have, as a successful Portugal-based company, specialized in finding, analyzing and acting on these opportunities.
Although we understand the advantages of being a European/Portuguese company, our approach would not be possible without our vast expertise in export markets. The world is not within borders and all businesses need to be ready to expand and succeed in a global market. Not only do we have a group of international partners and affiliates, but also deep knowledge in several non-European countries.
