Being a successful Brazilian investment manager is not an easy thing. The reason being political scandals, recession, and high inflation rates. Wealthy Brazilians would rather invest abroad than in their country due to low levels. However, the only thing preventing commercial capital flight according to executives is the high-interest rates in the country.

With the inflation running at almost double percentage (8.7%) of the central bank target (4.5%), investors are enjoying very high-interest rates of about 5%. With such prices, the investors have gone back to investing in local products such as real estate and agribusiness credit bills. Despite these high-interest rates, local investors still want to invest abroad to evade issues like corruption and inflation and protect their assets. These inflation rates have led to the rise of mergers and acquisition since Brazilian firms have gone down regarding value.
