Hedge Against International Commodities

Brazil is geographically distanced from crops in the rest of the world, making it an ideal hedge against weather and catastrophic events that might impact food production interruptions.

Natural Spread vs. U.S. Commodities

Brazil competes with the U.S. in marketing grains, meats and soft commodities.

Gateway to China Commodities

China is a major buyer of Brazilian commodities, and as China markets continue to open, there will be tremendous spreading opportunities in agricultural products between the U.S., Brazil and China.

Strengthening Economy

Brazil has elevated its global presence over the last several years, leading to highly tradable and volatile equity and interest rates markets.

Highlights
  • Maintain a global view of the markets with access to South America.
  • Brazil’s heavy focus on increasing trade and competition is opening the door for international investors and traders.
  • GDP showed considerable growth in Q1 2021, and Brazil should benefit from a rebound in commodity prices.
  • Interest rates increased considerably in 2020 and Q1/Q2 2021, an indication of the strengthening economy.
  • The Brazilian Real has weakened considerably over the last few years and will provide tremendous opportunities should it revert back toward its mean.
  • Brazil's global leadership in agriculture and mining makes the global economy increasingly reliant on Brazilian commodities.
