We have all heard about the Brazilian beach climate, but what have we heard lately about the Brazilian Investment Climate?
In the last couple of years, Brazil has become more attractive to global investors. The Brazilian economic system has grown stronger partially due to very low unemployment and the influx of foreign investment has risen. Their chief products still reside in agriculture, gas and oil, and mining continue to populate the country’s leading industries. In Brazil, as in many countries, there is the ongoing need for general education, and health care providers and services. All of this makes Brazil very attractive to many large business leaders in the world, thus expanding areas of investment and additional growth possibilities.
The growth of an agricultural and mining country like Brazil invites industry, new resources and expands the already developed areas and affords the country further growth in investment areas. The country is extremely rich in minerals and has tremendous growth possibilities. The Amazon rainforest is virtually unexplored with tremendous resources, mostly unknown at this time.
The steel industry in Brazil is ranked in the top dozen steel providers, with the rise of other metals, minerals and stones being mined at an increasing rate.
With the economy under control, opposed to so many other nations worldwide, Brazil appears to offer a more stable formula for investment with less fluctuation and leaning toward stability and upward growth patterns.
Their import and export business is steadily growing over the last six years. Let’s not forget the Brazilian Coffee Bean has always been a huge export item along with crude oil, soybean and sugar cane. Products we will continue to consume at a steady rate. The main product that comes out of Brazil is the iron ore and iron ore concentrates.
Zeca Oliveira, a fund manager, sees the business potential of Brazil and the reason it has become such an attractive business investment.
Zeca Oliveira, reports that there are 50 Brazilian stocks that trade in the United States in the form of ADRs (American Depository Receipt) from banking to real estate, utilities and general staples. Brazil also has a very sophisticated security exchange system called BM&F with several hundred firms listed on the exchange. Oliveira purports the stability of Brazil opens areas for investment that have never been tapped. He feels that investing now in Brazilian market would be excellent timing and may not always be available.
