Why Top Brazilian Banks Prosper Despite Economic Difficulties

Published / by Alice

While Brazil has been experiencing economic difficulties in the past few years, the country’s top two banks, Itau Unibanco and Banco Bradesco have done quite well. Their profits accordingt to respectively rose 36% and 28%.

How did they do that in a struggling economy? As Igor Cornelsen, top Brazilian banker and investor, points out, the secret lies in knowing the market as well as experience with turbulent conditions. It seems that successful Brazilian banks are focusing on lending those with good credit standing, which makes operations more secure and cost effective.

Igor Cornelsen sees the appointment of Joaquim Levy as finance minister to be a positive development for the Brazilian economy and its banks. Many see Mr Levy as a wise policymaker, and with a friendly and sensible attitude towards the private sector, which is in opposition to populist ideas held by many of Brazil’s politicians.

Mr. Cornelsen also tells business people and investors on bizjournals to pay attention to China. Any positive news coming from the Middle Kingdom are likely to be good for Brazil, especially its natural resources sector.

He also hopes that the new administration will let Brazilian Real to depreciate further, thus improving country’s competitiveness. He also thinks that the country’s Current Account needs to be improved. Yet, Brazil’s large market of nearly 200 million, vast natural resources, and a need for infrastructure development make this market to be attractive for foreigners.

For those looking to invest in this large South American country, he advises establishing relationships and networks with the locals, being ready (and patient enough) for the red tape, and knowing how to handle foreign currency restrictions.

Igor Cornelsen has been recognized as one of the top bankers in Brazil. He’s also an investor and currently works as a consultant. In the past, he manged some of the biggest Brazilian banks.
