Brazil’s reputation as an ideal investment destination in South America remains unsurpassed. Issued by Fortress Investment Group, a leading hedge fund firm, the sentiment comes in the wake of the stabilized political environment and favorable legislation that promote business ventures in the country. According to Gareth Henry, Fortress Investment Group’s CEO, Brazil’s real currency coupled by favorable performances at the equity market have yielded fantastic trades to place the country at a unique position to attract both local and foreign investors. The CEO’s sentiments have also been echoed by the company’s executive Mike Novogratz.
According to the CEO, the upcoming election poses a substantial transformation in the country’s leadership which could subsequently lead to an increase in the demand for Brazilian assets. The ambitious and creative CEO also hailed Scotland and Japan for making significant investments in the current financial year.
As a seasoned entrepreneur, Gareth Henry insists that Japan made a bold decision to invest in the country and subsequently reaped substantial profits. Not only will the country’s Abenomics (the government’s economic stimulus package by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe) increase but also dispense more income into the citizens’ salaries. On the other hand, Scotland remarkably transformed its failed independence into lucrative trading opportunities. Over the next year, Gareth Henry firmly believes in a positive ripple down effect through geopolitical transformations worldwide.
Fortress Investment Group was recently feted as the Credit-Focused Hedge Fund Firm of the Year. Issued by the Institutional Investor, the Accolade aims at recognizing exceptional companies across the hedge fund industry based on their unrivaled contributions and innovative achievements.
