Experts Discuss How Good Is Brazil for Investors

In an investors roundtable in Brazil chaired by Dario Epstein, President of Sur Investments, a group of top investors representing hedge funds, investment banks and pension funds will discuss and debate the global investment community’s views on the business and investment environment facing Brazil.

The group, which includes Michael Discher-Remlinger, Senior Portfolio Manager at PIMCO; Romulo Dias, Director of Bradespar; Walter Molano, Partner at BCP Securities; Alexandre Saigh, Managing Director of Banco Patria; and Robert Enserro, Portfolio Manager at BlueCrest Capital Management, will also debate Brazil’s likelihood of regaining its position at the top of the list of emerging markets, investment opportunities, as well as the successes and prospects of those Brazilian entities that are already global leaders in their fields.

The investors roundtable will take place during the 4th Brazil Investment Forum on Monday, August 28, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The 4th Brazil Investment Forum, organized by LatinFinance, is designed to advance discussion on the opportunities and challenges in Brazil. The forum will be held in Sao Paulo August 28-29 and will bring together local and international senior-level financial, business and political figures.

"Brazil: Back On Track" aims to examine and explain Brazil’s ongoing success and to place it in a wider context of medium-term challenges. Among the topics to be explored in the forum are: the upcoming elections and the implications for pending reforms, the evolution of capital markets, the return of an equity culture and implications for corporate governance, the risks of external shock and Brazil’s resilience, the leading role of the private sector in Brazil, and the long-standing challenge of infrastructure development.

Among confirmed speakers are Paulo Valle, Deputy Treasury Secretary at the Brazilian National Treasury; Sergio Rosa, President of PREVI; Richard F. Lark, CFO of Gol Linhas Aereas; Sergio Weguelin, Commissioner at CVM; Joao Batista Fraga, Executive Director, Listings and Issuer Relations at Bovespa; Bernardo Hees, CEO of ALL-Logistica; and Carlos Kawall, National Treasury Secretary of Brazil.

    Stupid question….and easy answer !
    The financial world is always ready to lend money to the country paying the world highest interest rates after inflation.
    Your credit quality improved but you have not reduced the interest rates after inflation : by now your borrowing rate is at around 14 % while inflation is at around 4 % !!!!! NET…around 10 % ! A gift….thank you ! How much more you want ? 50 or 100 billions reais ? More if you wish !

    In fact you are so naÀƒ¯ve….that you are buying back foreign debts….and to pay for the purchase you issue new local debts.
    In fact…..you are buying back debts that cost you below 7 % and issue new debts in local currency by paying 14 % or so. Not very clever….in my view.
    But not be clever and lack of common sense is a tradition in Brazil ! That is why….you are and will remain a developing nation for the mext 2 centuries…..minimum !
    If anyone of you borrowed money to 2 banks….one charging you 7 % and the other 14 %. if you can afford a repayment, who will you repay first, the bank that charges you 7 % or the bank charging 14 % ?
    Common sense would dictate that you would repay first the bank charging you 14 %, but Lula government just do the opposite !!!!!!
    Isnt that greaaaaat ?
