A Review Of The Brazilian Economy And Market By Igor Cornelsen

Being the second largest and eighth largest economy in South America and the world respectively, Brazil has been among the top traders globally. This country has in the past few decades managed to grow extensively to be one of the biggest trading partners for most of the countries in the word. Due to its economic growth and success, the country has grown to the extent that it was able to host the World Cup last summer. During this year’s summer, the country is expected to host the 2016 Olympic Games in its Rio. According to an experienced business person and investor from Brazil Igor Cornelsen, the coming Olympic games will be a true test for the countries economy and its stability. The country was recently trying its new economic matrix to help boost its economy further, will be able to gauge the might of its economy during this time. Igor Cornelsen says that the country will have no option but to move back to its market-oriented economy which has so far helped the country come this far to support this event.

Igor Cornelsen says that the country’s new economic matrix badly affected stock prices. The effect was so bad especially on those sectors that related to the government. During the period for this economic plan, the country recorded a GDP growth rate below 2%. As the figure stood at $2.5 trillion, most investors had lost their confidence in the economy as it had been going down for over six years. Igor Cornelsen states that natural resources which are available in plenty in the country and stable agriculture production are the supporting pillars of this countries economy. The country also has a fast growing middle class that has the potential to change the country’s economic face if it is empowered.

Igor Cornelsen goes ahead to add that market-oriented reforms working together fiscal austerity offer the best possible chances for the country to succeed. Most of the investors in this country’s markets are careful to evade any negative reaction that may arise in the economy. This prominent stock markets investor adds that Brazil should also concentrate some of its efforts to its major trade partner, China. He says that China may have a great role to play in the revival of the country’s economy as both countries have an intrinsically linked economy. As the Chinese economy grows and gets stronger, Brazil might be able to borrow a leaf and also grow as its raw materials will be able to get good prices. The country should also check its markets and rectify its overvalued currency. Igor Cornelsen says that economic sagas such as that of Petrobras badly hurt the nation’s economy. The country should fight corruption within its government and try to cut down on its expenditure. This money as Igor Cornelsen says should be used to provide more opportunities for the country’s middle class.

The Success of Ricardo Guimaraes During his Term in Banco BMG

Banco BMG has made much progress especially after it formed a joint venture with Itau Unibanco to operate in the payroll loan segment. This process was meant to make its management more professional through the hiring of new executives. The changes involved include a structure that will fit the Pentagna Guimaraes family that has always controlled the company to join the new group of professionals.

The primary aim of this process is to ensure the new move of doubling the payroll loan portfolio is well-managed as products that do not add value to the bank will be eliminated.

Indeed, BMG has had an upward progress over the last 80 years. Being the market leader in the credit business in Brazil, the trend going forward should be to maintain this position by offering the best services. However, the names of the two executives will have to be approved by the board and the central bank. The new Itau BMG consigned bank would aim to supply, market and distribute the payroll loans.

BMG gained in market share this year when it acquired Banco GE Capital S/A, the provider of General Electric (GE) services and promoter of sales from GE. Ricardo Guimaraes is the son of Flavio Guimaraes and grandson of Antonio Mourao Guimaraes. 1980 is the year he began working for the family business as an office assistant until he graduated in 1988 with a Business Administration course from UNA.

Having served as the former president and businessman of Banco BMG, Ricardo Guimaraes received a city council Merit Honor diploma in 2011. The award was in recognition of the work done by Ricardo Guimaraes from 2001 to 2006 as the president of the company. In his speech, Ricardo Guimaraes said that he was humbled to have been given the position and said that Belo Horizonte is still his professional and family roots.

The ceremony was attended by many dignitaries including the Secretary of State of Government, Danilo de Castro, Municipal Secretary of Finance, Jose Afonso da Silva and President of the Legislative Assembly of Minas Gerais (ALMG), Dinis Pinheiro (PSDB) among other dignitaries. Being one of the richest and most powerful families of Minas Gerais, the family is also respected for their success in business especially in the financial sector that started way back with their grandfather of the current president.
