OVER A QUARTER OF A CENTURY ADVISING CLIENTS IN LATIN AMERICA
Our history was built on-the-ground, conducting over 3,000 projects in over 30 LAC markets.
We Evolve with and for Our Clients
Americas Market Intelligence (AMI) got its start in 1992 in Mexico City under the brand name InfoMex, focused primarily on Mexican market intelligence. By 1995 we were conducting studies in South America, prompting a name change to InfoAmericas. In 1997, a second office was opened in São Paulo, and in 2000, a regional office was opened in Miami.
By 2005, our team had completed its 1,000th client engagement in Latin America. InfoAmericas was sold to Kroll in 2007, forming Kroll’s first market intelligence division. In 2011, our consultants regrouped under a new independent brand, Americas Market Intelligence. By 2012, our team had completed its 2,000th assignment in Latin America and by early 2018, its 3,000th.
In 2003, we realized that Latin American market experience was not enough to serve our client needs, so our consultants began forming industry practices. We have since built seven: Payments, Logistics, Healthcare, Natural Resources/Infrastructure, Consumer Goods & Retail, Insurance, Industrial and Education. Furthermore, our expanding client needs obliged us widen our service offering. Today, our blend of market research, competitive intelligence, political, regulatory and economic risk analysis is put to work both to help companies seek opportunity as well as mitigate risk.
The greatest testimony to our success is the confidence placed in our firm by our clients. 85% of our revenue comes from repeat clients, some of whom we have retained for more than 20 years.
We evolve at the pace of our clients. Beyond its core industry practices (Payments, Logistics, Healthcare, Natural Resources/Infrastructure, Consumer & Retail, and Insurance), AMI provides competitive intelligence, consumer insights and business intelligence for a wide variety of firms operating in both B2B and B2C channels in Latin America.
Typically, the types of clients who bring on AMI to help spur their success in Latin America include consumer insights leaders, CMOs, marketing and market research directors, strategic planners, LAC division presidents, CFOs, CEOs, as well as shareholders and board members.
