Banking and financial services are two similar industries that are difficult to succeed in, especially upon initial entry. Every country’s – if not every culture’s – financial markets behave in general and respond differently to changes in the markets themselves, news, or current events.
Brazil’s investing and banking markets are no exception to this rule, and are actually more difficult to understand than most other markets.
PR Newswire revealed that fortunately for investors in the fifth-most populated country in the world, Brazil, South American banking expert Igor Cornelsen recently released four tips that every player in anything related to finances in Brazil should know about.
Brazil’s financial markets are largely dependent on their relations with China, the single largest exporter to the Portuguese-speaking country. China also sells tons of finished goods to countries in Latin America, just like Brazil. As such, these two factors weigh heavily on what’s going on with Brazil’s investing opportunities.
Investors interested or already playing in Brazil’s markets should closely keep up with current events and news related to China, Brazil, and Latin America, as well as interactions between the three.

Brazil, unfortunately, only has a handful of reputable banks. However, they’re relatively easy to spot, as they’re spread across the entirety of Brazil. Igor Cornelsen advises investors to stay away from local, small, rural banks, as they’re far less likely to hold true to keeping your money, securities, and other assets safe.
Politicians, specifically those involved with finance, haven’t fared well for Brazil in the past few years. Rather than boosting their performance, they’ve actually caused it to decrease, holding especially true for times directly after them making changes in fiscal policy. Keep an eye out for appointments, elections, and changes in economic policy.
Mr. Cornelsen feels strongly that Brazil’s real is a bad currency to invest in. No matter what news media, fellow investors, or financial advisors have to say, stay far, far away from the real.
