    "Why Brazil? My frequent trips there (I just returned yesterday to NYC from Sao Paulo) have convinced me that this country is about to experience a period of above-average economic growth. Brazil's COVID numbers aren't impressive yet, but the vaccination campaign has accelerated, and I believe the pandemic is past its peak even in the middle of winter there. But Brazil's economy, other than tourism, is most dependent on people making "stuff" and buying the raw materials to make that stuff from Brazil. That business is booming now."

    "The search for strategies that identify risks and growth opportunities with a motivation in sustainable investing has never been higher for emerging markets.

    Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing provides a way for investors to go above and beyond traditional financial considerations by focusing on a variety of impactful topics relevant to corporations. These topics include how companies interact with their employees, the communities they operate in, their commitment to the environment, and how they encourage change and innovation, to name a few.

    The rapid growth and relevance of sustainable investing over the past years has made it a cornerstone in the investment selection process, so the presence of a broad ESG benchmark for the largest market in Latin America was necessary.

    Aimed toward ESG-oriented investors, S&P Dow Jones Indices launched on Aug. 31, 2020, the S&P/B3 Brazil ESG Index, an ESG-weighted index following a straight set of rules suitable for the Brazilian market, with a focus on sustainability and ESG principles similar to those of the S&P 500® ESG Index."

    PwC releases a guide to foreign investors. 

    "In considering the outlook for investing and capital allocation in Brazil for 2020, several contradictions exist. On the one hand, the government has raised its growth forecast for 2020 to 2.2%, up from 1.8%. In 2019, Brazil received the highest amount of foreign direct investment (FDI) (measured as a percentage of GDP) since 2001, exceeding earlier projections by the central bank.

    Crucially, the government passed the long-awaited social security reform, which has the potential to rein in unsustainable public spending. This also removed a major psychological hurdle for some institutional investors. Under the careful stewardship of the central bank, inflation hovers within the 4% target for 2020, and interest rates are at a historic low."
