Specialists analyze prospects for private equity as part of series of seminars
Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Brazilian School of Economics and Finance (FGV EPGE) is holding an event called “Prospects for the Private Equity Sector” on May 15, at 2 pm, in the M. F. Thompson Motta Auditorium. The event is being organized by the school’s Undergraduate Economics Department, as part of the “Contemporary Topics” series of seminars, which is aimed at providing a forum to discuss key subjects on Brazil’s economic agenda.
Private equity is an investment class focused on buying stakes in companies that are not publicly traded and therefore not listed on stock exchanges. The segment has been gaining ground in Brazil as its capital markets have matured and its business environment has showed signs of strengthening.
Driven by opportunities in different sectors, especially investment in innovative technology and agribusiness companies, investment by private equity funds in Brazilian companies exceeded R$35 billion in the first nine months of 2022. Private equity has been going through major transformations, with the increased participation of individual investors and the democratization promoted by private equity investment funds aimed at small individual investors.
To discuss these and other subjects, the seminar will feature Bruno Zaremba, Vinci Partners’ private equity chairman. Comments will be given by Professor Caio Ramalho, the coordinator of FGV’s MBA in Private Equity, Venture Capital and Investing in Starups.
