Private Equity and Venture Capital in Brazil Forum - Stirling Square, London

Building upon the success of last year's inaugural Brazil forum, this event seeks to facilitate international networks for ABVCAP and BVCA members and to provide the building blocks to assist fundraising, transactions, responsible investing and other areas important to investors and fund managers. This year's forum will also include presentation of the results of a recent survey of limited partners' views of investing in Brazil.

Driven by its continued growth despite the financial crisis and global economic downturn and strengthened by an emerging middle class, robust domestic market, vast natural resources, sound government policies and maturing capital markets, Brazil is one of the most attractive and rapidly-growing global markets for private equity and venture capital investment.

Join us to access essential intelligence, trends and forecasts from leading local and global general partners and institutional investors in Brazilian private equity funds.

Free places are available for qualified:

  • LPs
  • GPs
  • Governmental, NGO and journalists

Individual Meetings

An exclusive room will be available for individual meetings between interested investors and Brazilian fund managers. Our team will be coordinating the meetings, which will be held for approximately 60 minutes.
