Brazil Family Office Guide

Brazil has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and its ascension to wealth has been nothing short of staggering.  This growth has been spurred on by foreign investors eager to profit from the growth in this emerging market.  With all the wealth being created in Brazil’s many thriving industries, there is a big need for family offices in this country.

The following free guide to Brazil Family Offices will help you better understand Brazilian family offices and provide you with resources to learn more about Brazilian family offices.  You should also check out our 100% free book on family offices.

Introduction to Brazil

Brazil is a South American country with a very strong economy.  Brazil’s economy has had an incredible growth rate over the last few years, fueled by the agricultural, mining, manufacturing, and service sectors.  Brazil’s economy is bigger than all of the other South American economies, making it a major player in international business and a trading partner to countries around the world. Here is a good excerpt from the World Factbook to give you a better sense of just how big Brazil’s economy is becoming:

Since 2003, Brazil has steadily improved its macroeconomic stability, building up foreign reserves, and reducing its debt profile by shifting its debt burden toward real denominated and domestically held instruments.

Although Brazil was hit by the global recession, it bounced back with a quick recovery and is back on pace with impressive growth.

Why Brazil?  

As has been previously stated, Brazil has a growing economy and a lot of wealth is being generated in the country.  The need for family offices in Brazil is very great and indeed there are already several family offices in the country.  I have spent a lot of time working in Brazil and because there is such huge wealth being created by the owners of commodity-related businesses and industry-leading companies there is a big demand for family offices surpassing the number that already exist in Brazil.

Family Offices in Brazil 

Due to the mass of wealth being created in Brazil, there is a strong demand for family offices.  Many family offices currently operate in the country, a quick development given that Brazil is still an emerging economy.  It is encouraging to see how quickly Brazilians have taken to family offices.  Another optimistic signal is the growing wealth in the country.

Family offices are becoming increasingly popular in Brazil as a way for affluent families and individuals to maintain and grow their wealth.  With a huge increase in income, there are surely going to be a lot of family offices springing up to serve these wealthy families.
