Record High for Brazilian Investment Security - Obelisk International News
|Pressemitteilung von: Obelisk International|
(openPR) - As investment in Brazil expands so does the perception of Brazil as a secure investment destination. The differential between Brazil and the US recently reached its lowest ever reflecting big investor confidence in Brazil.|
The difference in risk levels between the US and Brazil dropped to 0.6% last week indicating that confidence in investments in Brazil is growing fast. The US is considered an international benchmark for financial security and the narrowing of the gap between the US and Brazil suggests that Brazilian investments are considered secure.
The differential was registered on the Credit Default Swap (CDS), a widely-used insurance policy for investors who wish to protect their investments from default, particularly government bonds. Investment in Brazilian government bonds is particularly popular at the moment as has been seen in the huge movement in the CDS market recently.
Confidence in Brazil Investment
With its strong economy, massive consumer market and the forthcoming sporting events, Brazil is increasingly recognised as an emerging market with exceptional potential. Its stable democracy and a government firmly committed to encouraging and facilitating foreign investment adds to the perception of Brazil’s solvency.
This confidence in Brazil has led to big investment interest and investment by foreigners in Brazil has never been higher. Foreign direct investment reached record levels in 2010 with 2011 expected to see even bigger sums entering the country.
In line with this growth in trust in Brazil, the investment ratings agency Fitch recently raised Brazil’s rating for sovereign debt investment from BBB to BBB+. Unsurprisingly, this has led to higher investment and in the first three months of this year, US$35.2 billion entered Brazil in investment funds, a 46.2% increase on Q1 in 2010.
A clear indication of Brazil’s solvency comes from a glance at its public accounts. The balance sheet has improved dramatically over the last few years. The difference between public debt and the country’s GDP currently stands at just under 40% - it was 60% in 2002.
Once very much in the red when it came to external debt, Brazil now ranks as an important international creditor because of its very healthy stock of international reserves and. This cushion of US$320 billion speaks volumes for Brazil’s solvency.
Obelisk International has tracked this rise in confidence in Brazilian investments. Obelisk International investors now appreciate not just Brazil’s potential but also the country’s credit worthiness. This sure-fire combination makes for one of the best investment destinations anywhere.
