In this interview, Álvaro Gonçalves, Managing Partner and CEO of Stratus Group, provides Privcap’s David Snow with an overview of the state of the Brazilian private equity market. They discuss the key opportunities and challenges for investors – and why a lack of information about Brazilian private equity remains a core challenge.
Issues also discussed include: why the “capital-market lens” is not the best way to understand the Brazilian private equity opportunity; why Gonçalves believes “it’s very good news” that big international firms and new GPs are joining the competitive fray; why “there’s an ocean of companies that are completely untouched” by private equity in Brazil; why sustainable investing is Brazil’s “convergence of the century”; and why shortage of talent is an issue that keeps Gonçalves up at night.
