    BRICS 20 years

    In 2021 M+V and Altios joined hands to create the number 1 global expansion firm serving small and mid-cap firms (Mittlestand) wanting to expand internationally. We have taken care of our clients over the last decades. This year, Altios celebrates its 30th anniversary and M+V turned 20 last year. Together we operate 32 global offices and can help in more than 50 countries in total – covering North and South America Europe as well as all of Asia Pacific.

    Our 700 professionals have worked with more than 8500 international companies and we are the trusted advisor of our client companies no matter if you plan to enter, expand or invest in a foreign market. M+V is the specialist for India for the last 20 years. Today it is more important to be present internationally and we can help you.

    It doesn’t matter if you want to sell your products in new markets or if you want to set up a new business or acquire an established business in another part of the world. All of this you can now do with our group so you don’t have to work with multiple service providers. Meaning you don’t have to lose valuable time explaining your what your objectives and values are.

    Twenty years ago the BRICS countries were highlighted as the new centres of international growth for the next 50 years, forecasting them to outpace developed countries for growth and suggesting a global economic shift to incorporate these fast-growth countries.

    Over the next two decades, BRICS became a political movement and expanded to include more emerging markets and developing countries. Making emerging markets ever more important for the global economy. Without a doubt, spotlighting a selected group of emerging economies has influenced investors and companies to look at global expansion in a different way for this century.

    By 2019 the combined GDP of BRICS formed 55% of the GDP of the other G6. Predictions for each country for their place in the expanded global market have played out to some extent or other –

    • Brazil as a food producer,
    • Russia as a key energy exporter,
    • India as key in the IT fields, and
    • China as a global factory becoming the leader in digital transformation


    It is China that has outperformed forecasts, while India’s growth has been less smooth than predicted but is promising, meanwhile Brazil and Russia still have not lost their dependence on raw materials and the global commodities cycles.  The demographic projections have been more than realised with 3 billion of the world’s population in just those 4 countries which again highlighted the potential in many more emerging markets.

    Every company who has interests in expanding outside their home country should be active in these markets to some extent, and in all cases, M+V Altios can help. Altios has been in China for 22 years and M+V has 20 years of experience in India. We have 15 years of experience in Brazil and a long history in Russia. BRIC staff make up 50% of our international teams and over 40% of our revenues. BRICS will remain a very big part of our strategy and we look forward to helping you there.
