PRLog - Nov. 13, 2012 - BERLIN, Germany -- (Frankfurt, Germany, 30 October 2012) – Atheneum Partners, a global expert platform and advisory firm with more than 100,000 industry specialists, provided some of its financial experts to participate in an investment summit hosted by the Brazilian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (ABVCAP) and Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil)
ABVCAP Panel Moderated by Mathias Wengeler, CEO Atheneum Partners
The PEVC in Brazil Forum gathered over 50 leading European and Brazilian investors and advisors with a focus on Brazil to network and share insight in the hope of fostering further incoming and outgoing transactions. Topics discussed included: the German and Brazilian investment environments, regulatory constraints, investment best practices and expert perspectives on future market growth in Latin America.
Brazil continues to be of high interest to General and Limited Partners worldwide, particularly attracting German investment in industrial production in Sao Paulo. However, concerns regarding strict regulation, high transport costs, inflation and a need for a tight knit local network to learn about untapped investment potential in Brazil, have kept many European investors apprehensive. The summit addressed these challenges, recognizing some and offering solutions while discrediting others.
In addition to leveraging its network of experts, Atheneum Partners’ CEO, Mathias Wengeler, moderated a panel on executing deals in Brazil, which included Federico Robalinho, CEO of Nova Investments;
The event provided an intimate forum for European and Brazilian professionals with an interest in learning more about each country’s potential for foreign investment to gather best practices, evaluate challenges and found a growing personal network that was frequently stressed during the panels as being so vital to Brazilian business.
