April 2011

Mr. Galvis was featured in an interview about attracting foreign private equity to Brazil in the April 2011 issue of Financier Worldwide. In the interview, Mr. Galvis discussed the drivers of private equity activity in Brazil and the effect of industry fragmentation on opportunities for foreign PE firms, as well as opportunities created by infrastructure investment in Brazil. Mr. Galvis also noted, “Although it is unclear whether any specific trend will shape the Brazilian private equity market in 2011, medium-sized companies in the consumer products and services area have a significant need for capital and management expertise, and this creates a natural opportunity for private equity firms.”
