Company history

Indícios was founded in 1998 by the initiative of Ms Fátima Marcos, a graduate in Social Psychology and passionate about market research, an area where she started these operations even before finishing her graduation.
Challenging herself to create a company that collects information for market research oriented results of excellence, Indícios was initially focussed for the local market, after growing to national and more recently to international markets.
The cornerstone of our philosophy lies and is based on detailed field work and values such as proactivity, dynamism and innovation in the development of market research, marketing and advertising, to satisfy the most demanding needs and objectives of our clients.

We follow the quality and accuracy guidelines based on the ESOMAR and APODEMO code of conduct.
