Obelisk International Investment in Brazil

Obelisk International Investment in Brazil

The world of investment moves fast and to keep up with the very latest in Brazil, Obelisk International has just fully updated the Brazil Investment Guide. This guide with 24 full-colour pages of information brings you right up to date with the many investment opportunities available in Brazil. The updated guide is downloadable free in pdf format from the Obelisk International website.

The Brazil Investment Guide has been one of Obelisk International’s most popular guides to date. The guide forms part of the Obelisk International tradition of providing cutting-edge investment information, but as well as looking at property, it also provides an insight into the many investment options in Brazil. So, as well as finding extensive information about the Brazil property market, the investor can also explore other less-known areas of investment such as agriculture and green energy.

Since the guide was published in June, many things have happened in Brazil. For example, Latin America’s biggest country became the world’s 8th largest economy; Brazil clearly proved it had left the world recession well behind; mortgage lending continued to soar; and Dilma Rousseff became Brazil’s new president. The updated guide covers all these and more.

The revised guide offers the latest figures on those aspects of Brazil’s economy that are most important from an investment perspective. These include GDP figures (from the most recent quarter available to the latest predictions for this year and beyond), unemployment, inflation, consumer spending and levels of foreign direct investment.

With updated facts and figures, the guide examines the many focal points for foreign investment in Brazil. These include the construction industry, commodities, agriculture, social housing and stocks and shares. Investors may be surprised to discover that 19% of the world’s agricultural land is in Brazil; that annual sales in construction materials are predicted to rise by almost 70% by 2016; and that since 2005, Brazil has the world’s second highest growth rate in clean energy investment. Not to mention that the government is building 3 million low-cost homes by the end of 2014 within the Minha Casa Minha Vida programme.

The Obelisk Brazil Investment Guide takes a look at the myriad investment opportunities in Brazil against a background of emerging markets worldwide. Brazil, along with China, India, Indonesia and Russia, is at the forefront of emerging market economies, currently leading the global economy. The guide also outlines Brazil’s exciting future, about to unfold to the tune of massive oil exploitation and the world’s top two sporting events – the 2014 World Cup (held at locations throughout Brazil) and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Obelisk International has been present in Brazil for several years and we are well aware of the huge investment potential found there. However, we are also aware of the difficulties and the Brazil Investment Guide sounds a note of caution for investors. Widely considered the current ‘land of opportunity’, Brazil is not an easy country to do business in and many doors are closed to newcomers in Brazil without bona fide local associates. ‘Who you know’ is fundamental to Brazilian business practice and the basis to successful investment.

Obelisk International believes that this guide offers an essential insight into opportunities for investment in Brazil. The guide provides the first step to investment – that all-important background knowledge that is right up to date. Why not download your free copy of the Brazil Investment Guide from the Obelisk International website and discover for yourself why “Brazil is well positioned as a future powerhouse” (Ernst & Young, Sept 2010).
