Multinationals Focus on Growth and Expansion in 2013

SUPER: Alex Wilmot-Sitwell
2013 we’re back to a normal market environment. With regard to corporates, the last few years have largely been spent cutting costs, retrenching, focussing on core competency. In the boardroom now there’s a much greater sense of a need for growth, a need for expansion, a need for a more outward looking approach to strategy.
Growth in markets like Brazil, Mexico, Russia and many economies in Asia will continue to be very strong in 2013 and I see continued appetite for inward investment into the markets. The important thing for companies and institutional investors is to be able to see those windows of opportunity and be able to move quickly and decisively to take them.
