Many investors today are looking at opportunities in Brazil. While it may appear that the interest being sparked is the result of the world cup and the upcoming Olympic games this interest primarily has to do with other factors. These facts include that Brazil has the eighth largest economy in the world. It is one of the world’s top food producers and as a consequence, its economy will have to continue to grow to keep up with food demand. It is also a huge market of over 200 million people with products and services that are still not available in other parts of the world. This is going to have to change too. If you add all of these factors together what you get is a very positive financial outlook for investors. This is in spite of Brazil’s political climate and the failed attempts of President Dilma Rousseff to alter Brazil’s economic direction. Even though Rousseff’s populist policies have failed to change the countries economic direction it appears that policies may be different under Brazil’s newly appointed finance minister Joaquin Levy Ph.D. Being a graduate of Chicago University, Mr. Levy seems capable and prepared to institute the necessary reforms that will nudge Brazil’s economy back on track after more than six years of the failed populist policies of President Dilma Rousseff.
Another investor incentive is that the price of stocks in the Brazilian market are likely to be at their bottom point. Because of this and the additional pull of Brazil’s natural resources more and more people are looking into starting new businesses in the country. But where do you start? Igor Cornelson, a banker and investment expert has several tips and techniques he would like you to look into before you rush in and start investing. He has always been positive and upbeat about the economy of Brazil and with Igor Cornelsen’s extensive knowledge he is sure that you can be prepared for what this new market can bring you.
As with other aspects of the culture, Brazilians rely on relationships and networking. They are easy to befriend and happy to find and explore new connections. They are happy to chit chat and even give you advice based on their own experiences. Investors should also be prepared for regulations, high taxes, and the prevalent bureaucracy of the government. The markets are growing and these seeming roadblocks are just the signs of how fragile and protected the markets are. It also is a sign that the payoff can be huge for the smart investor who can get around these barriers.
China is another factor that bears paying attention to says Cornelson. Even though it is Brazil’s largest trading partner a rising Chinese economy, which has been in the news lately, spells nothing but good news for the Brazilian economy and Brazilian investments. The two countries are economically linked together and looking sharply at connected markets such as those of Brazil and China will help you have a better understanding of these investments.
