100 days into government, President Dilma Rousseff is proving to be good news for Brazilian investment. With high popularity, raised credit rating and record levels of investment, Brazil is flying high under Dilma.

After just over three months in office, Dilma is enjoying huge popularity among the Brazilians. Her rating as a politician is currently higher than her mentor’s, Lula when he started as Brazilian president.

Dilma’s levels of popularity mean many analysts no longer question her credibility. According to the latest edition of ‘Dinheiro’ financial magazine, “rather than standing in Lula’s shadow, Dilma is overshadowing her predecessor”.

Two Compelling Reasons

The Brazilian have several compelling reasons to be more than happy with Dilma’s record so far. Fitch Ratings recently raised the rating for sovereign debt investment in Brazil from BBB to BBB+. At a time when several countries are seeing their investment ratings fall, this is an indication of the buoyant climate for Brazilian investment.

As well as an improved rating for investment, Brazil is experiencing record levels of foreign investment under Dilma. During the first quarter of this year, Brazil investment inflows exceeded outflows by a massive US$35.2 billion. This hike represents an increase of 46.2% on last year’s levels of investment in Brazil.

Challenges for 2011

The Brazilian economy is booming and now stands in 7th place in the world ranking. The increasing affluent middle classes, hungry for consumer goods, ensure the economy continues to drive forward. Jim O’Neill from Goldman Sachs, the inventors of the BRIC acronym, claims Brazil is the most popular of the four BRIC nations for investment.

But Brazil also faces challenges this year. Inflation must be kept in check and Dilma’s government needs to closely monitor exchange rate appreciation. Dilma has already introduced measures to deal with these challenges and as she moves into the second quarter of office, there’s every sign that these measures are taking effect.

For Obelisk International, Dilma and her government are undoubtedly making moves that favour investment in Brazil. As well as actively encouraging foreign investment, Dilma’s government is continuing with social programmes such as Minha Casa Minha Vida, which affords excellent opportunities for investment in Brazilian real estate.

Obelisk International has also experienced record levels of investment in Brazil so far this year, coinciding with Dilma’s first 100 days. And we expect to see much more investment over her next years in office.
