Latin American countries will encounter a rough patch before adjusting to the industrial revolution ahead, says Finance analyst Felipe Montoro

Thirty days ago, Argentina was the topic of the day in many newsrooms after hosting governors and high profile members of the Inter-America development bank for the special meeting in its prestigious city of Mendoza. Besides the governors, the meeting which took place on March 24th to be precise also had hordes of A-list business personnel from all over the world in attendance. According to a report by Felipe Montoro Jens, Dyogo Oliveira, Brazil’s Minister of planning, development, and management was, however, the highlight of the day. Follow Montoro Jens on Twitter.

During the meeting, Mr. Oliveira went on to even address the burning question that most people had regarding the increased number of private investors in the infrastructure sector. In the report, Felipe cites that Dyogo reminded the attendants that by allowing the private sector to indulge in the infrastructure sector in Latin America they are paving the way for the local business people to easily access capital. He even went ahead to say that the participants should go the extra mile in encouraging these private investors into the region by partaking in research and analysis to help them come up with a set of solutions to manage the high rates of risks involved in Latin American projects. Mr. Oliveira also added that by opening doors to them these investors will help South American Countries Bridge the existing infrastructure gap resulting to tremendous growth which is why the IDB should make it their priority to pave way for them.

Most of the high profile attendees to the special meeting seemed to stand the same ground as Dyogo Oliveira because for instance, Argentina’s own minister of Finance and chairman of IDB, Luis Caputo also shared the same views and even urged the participants to prioritize on private investors by coming up with platforms and bridges which will encourage them to continue investing in the region.

Caputo was not the only one who echoed Oliveira’s sentiments because Spain’s secretary of state for economy and business support, Garido also shared the same ground by saying that the region packs a punch of raw opportunities which can be converted into profitable investments by the private sector. Case in study, he pointed out that most Spanish investors find Brazil as an appealing and also rich destination for investments.

In a nutshell, all the leaders and governors who attended the meeting came to a conclusion that they should pave the way for private investors in the region. Thanks to this Felipe Montoro Jens a well-known financial analyst says that even though the industrial revolution set to take place ahead will shake up things for the good of Latin America countries, it will take some time before the region fully adjusts to the changes.

Flavio Maluf on How Tax Incentives Can Help the Community

If there is one thing any good businessman should know, it is the ins and outs of taxation. For Brazilian entrepreneur Flavio Maluf, these are lessons he has learned as the chairmen and head of the Eucatex Group, a company with decades of industry experience in Brazilian wood panelling, sourcing materials nationally and internationally for construction, furniture, automobiles, and toy manufacturing.

Flavio Maluf knows that taxes are a part of life, but for any company to thrive under the burdens of the Brazilian tax structure, Maluf advises them to investigate and make use of the Fiscal Incentive Law. While the law doesn’t quite lessen the financial burden, it does allow companies to more directly influence where their tax money goes, for instance, funding of social, cultural, sporting, technological, scientific, and health-related programs. Flavio Maluf sees the value of supporting those programs, and marketing that support, as the key benefit of this law. The positive image fostered by this financial support will pay dividends in the goodwill of consumers and in the advertising it provides.

There are also numerous, regional tax incentives that strategic companies can take advantage of. Flavio Maluf cites the Manaus Free Zone as one of the best known examples in Brazil, the incentive meant to foster economic activity in the Western Amazon. For companies willing and able, this incentive could be an enormous resource in tax savings, as well as aiding in the development of remote regions of the country.

If you look hard enough, Flavio Maluf suggests there are incentives to be found around many corners. For example, companies in specific industries can benefit from a variety of tax breaks that free resources up for investment in improving and increasing the company’s operations. Relevant sectors include technology, infrastructure, export, aerospace, agriculture, and audiovisual. Maluf, who has run his family’s business since 1997, taking over for his uncle, also advises interested companies to keep in mind that tax incentives can found at all levels of government: federal, state, and municipal. The savings are out there, and Flavio Maluf knows that the proactive entrepreneurs will find them and use them to sustain and build their business.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi: Being Chosen As The President Of Bradesco Bank

Brazil is one of the most progressive states on the planet, and they are home to a number of competitive financial institutions that are trying to become the best bank in the country.

For many years, Bradesco Bank held the position as the leading and the largest bank in Brazil, but in 2009, they were dethroned from the top rank for the first time. The merger of Banco Itau and Unibanco changed the landscape for the Brazilian banking industry. The merger of the two former banks created the Itau Unibanco, and they acquired more investors, and their assets ballooned. The newly formed financial institution dethroned Bradesco Bank, and the latter started to think about counter actions that would bring them back to the top position.

However, it would not be easy for Bradesco Bank to think about new strategies as their president decided to retire in 2009. They would need to find a new individual who would be able to lead the company to new heights, and the board of directors started to choose from their roster to search for the next president of Bradesco Bank. From the shortlist that the board of directors received, one application stood out, and it came from the executive vice president of the company, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi. The executive vice president of Bradesco Bank has served the company for a number of decades, and according to the board of directors, he is the man born for the job.

Working with Bradesco Bank at the age of 17, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi had to balance his school life and his employee life. He was promoted after 15 years of service being clerk within Bradesco Bank, and he was assigned to serve in a number of departments within the company. Some of his accomplishments during these years were the improvement of the company’s relationship with the country’s media companies and the acquisition of more than 25% of the insurance market in Brazil. When he was promoted to become the new president of Bradesco Bank, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi had to think about ways on how he could take Bradesco Bank back on track.

In 2015, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi made one of the toughest decisions of his life. He planned to purchase HSBC Brazil for $5.2 billion, and he plans to increase the value of the company. The board of directors initially warned him about the transaction, but he persuaded them that his plan would work out. The executives working for HSBC Brazil accepted his offer, and the financial institution went under the direct control of Bradesco Bank. After the transaction was completed, several investors decided to reinvest in Bradesco Bank, hoping that they could benefit from the expansion of the company. The acquisition of HSBC Brazil also meant that the number of assets under Bradesco Bank soared.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi contributed a lot to the company; however, he would have to go down from his post as he already reached the age of retirement.

The Remarkable Skills of Igor Cornelsen as an Investment Advisor

Brazil is one of the top places for investors to put their money. Igor Cornelsen is among the individuals who are currently benefiting from owning investments in the country. He, however, believes that people who have never done business in foreign countries need to understand some variables. It is essential to know what to expect from investing in a specific country. Igor is well informed on the aspects that an individual needs to consider before spending the first dollar. He offers guidance to people on how they can maximize profits and avoid risks.

According to Cornelsen, investors are required to understand currency restrictions in the country that they wish to put their money. Brazil has set various controls on currency. For instance, individuals who are not local businesspeople or residents are required to exchange any foreign currency in an authorized bank. Different exchange rates have been set depending on the type of transaction that one does. Knowledgeable investors can utilize this to benefit themselves. Igor believes that it is necessary to research currency laws.

Igor’s second tip to success is connecting with the country’s natives. He believes that most people in Brazil are entrepreneurs and understand a lot about business. Excellent networks and relationships make it easy for people to run enterprises in the country. Cornelsen believes that it is easy for both residents and foreigners to network in Brazil since 25 percent of people who are between 18 and 64 years old have ventured into business. Most Brazilians are also interactive and very welcoming. It is quite easy to make the new friend explore different ideas.

The investment expert also believes that is necessary for new investors in Brazil to be prepared to follow the law. The government has set strict regulations, and this has made it difficult for many investors to thrive in Brazil.

It is important to conduct sufficient research to acquire information about regulations to avoid being on the wrong side of the law.
