Macro Minutes: Brazil Today: Recent Political Events and Investing Opportunities

Key Points

  • The bulk of Brazil’s exposure is in Energy and Materials, but the Financial sector has grown significantly, along with the emergence of more growth-oriented areas such as e-commerce within the Consumer Discretionary sector.
  • Brazil tends to outperform with value in the emerging markets universe.
  • In our view, Brazil is well-poised to capitalise on the global economic recovery and expansion.
Investing in financial markets involves a risk of loss and there is no guarantee that all or any invested capital will be repaid. Past performance neither guarantees nor reliably indicates future performance. The value of investments and the income from them will fluctuate with world financial markets and international currency exchange rates.
