Investors from US, Japan and Europe Are in Brazil for WFIC Congress

WFIC Starting today and running through Sunday, September 21, Brazil is holding the World Individual Investors and Investment Clubs Congress (WFIC Congress). Representatives of the largest investment associations and investment clubs from more than 10 countries around the world are in Brazil for the meeting.

The WFIC Congress is happening at the Hotel Transamerica Resort in São Paulo, in southeastern Brazil and is sponsored by the World Federation of Investors Corporation (WFIC). The event encounter is held every two years in one of the Federation's member countries.

Brazil was chosen this year, according to the organizer of the encounter, because of the growing interest the country has roused in investors around the world.

A large number of Brazilian investors have confirmed they will attend, along with representatives from the United States, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Slovenia, Canada, Bulgaria, the United Kingdom and Japan.

The Congress was brought to the country by the Instituto Nacional de Investidores – INI (National Investors Institute), a member of WFIC, with the support of Tradenetwork, the company responsible for organizing Expo Money and the European Investors Association – Euroshareholders.

Jointly, WFIC and Euroshareholders have 30 affiliated national associations, more than 700,000 associated individuals and 60,000 investment clubs.

Those attending the Congress expect to have an opportunity to get to know some of the leading Brazilian companies such as: BMF&FBovespa, CPFL Energia, CEMIG, CETIP and Bradesco bank and to participate in technical visits to Petrobras (the Henrique Lage Refinery) and VALE (the Mutuca, íguas Claras and Capão Xavier mines).

The event's program will be opened by Mr. Paulo Campos, President of the INI Supervisory Board. He will be followed by a speech from the Chairman of WFIC, Lars-Erik Forsgaardh, a representative of the Swedish Investors Association.

There will also be a topic panel on "Perspectives for Investment in Brazil" at which Gilberto Mifano, President of the BM&FBovespa Supervisory Board, will speak about the "Brazilian Stock Market," and Roberto Teixeira da Costa, who was the first President of CVM, will speak on the subject "Why Invest in Brazil."

During the course of the Congress there will be presentations from the above-mentioned companies, one-on-one meetings and a panel for exchanging experiences between international and Brazilian investors.
