DEVERE GROUP IN LISBON
16 Jan, 2012
The deVere Group, the world’s largest financial advisory firm, has started the New Year by forging ahead with its ambitious global expansion in announcing that it is to open new offices in Lisbon, Portugal, next month.
The base in the Portuguese capital is the first of 12 new offices that will open in 2012. It is part of a wider, strategic plan to operate a total of 100 within five years to service the company’s continually growing client figures and to keep in-step with the increasing demand for the deVere Group’s services.
deVere Group Director, Mike Coady, says: “To continue to deliver world-class service to a rapidly expanding number of clients worldwide, we’re delighted to confirm that deVere Group will open in Lisbon in February.”
He adds: “We offer locally-based expert financial advisors who are part of an established, global organisation to best serve the needs of our existing and potential clients.
“Whilst the economic woes of Portugal as a whole have been well-documented, Lisbon remains an extremely vibrant business hub, with expatriates being some of the city’s leading employers, top-earners and major investors.
“In addition, it is the ideal location from where we can reach Portugal’s tens of thousands of foreign residents in other areas of the country, such as the Algarve.
“Since the economic downturn there has been an increasing awareness, especially amongst expats, of the need to seek professional, independent financial advice if they are to maximise their wealth. As those who live abroad require a completely different planning strategy to their counterparts in the UK, the deVere Group believes that tailor-made financial solutions should be devised with the client wherever they may be.”
With more than 60 offices worldwide, the deVere Group has a truly global presence. The Lisbon office will join the firm’s four existing offices (Marbella, Madrid, Barcelona and Denia) on the Iberian Peninsula.
