"AAA Welcomes News of Abu Dhabi Investment in Brazil"
AAA Welcomes News of Abu Dhabi Investment in Brazil News that United Arab Emirates investment vehicle, Mubadala, is looking into investing in Brazil has been welcomed by alternative investment advocacy and analysis group, AAA (Alternative Asset Analysis). Boston, MA, May 05, 2011 -- AAA’s partner and experienced fund manager Anthony Johnson said, “Mubabada’s interest in Brazil comes at a time when investment in emerging economies is growing in popularity. “This kind of well-thought-out strategy helps investors reap the benefits of getting into economies early when they have a long way to go in terms of growth. This investment approach also helps countries like Brazil to become prosperous.” The chairman of Mubadala, Waleed Al Muhairi, has recently met with Fernando Pimentel, the Brazilian Minister of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, according to the Arab Brazil News Agency. A spokesperson for the government in the UAE told the media that it had a total of $13 billion that it wanted to invest in industries including oil and gas, aerospace, infrastructure and aluminium. Agribusiness investment was also being mulled, according to reports. This could involve investment in forestry through firms such as Greenwood Management, which provide institutions and individuals with the chance to invest in sustainable forestry plantations in Brazil. Investments in Brazilian timber plantations have generated some impressive returns in recent years as the asset class proves increasingly attractive as a safer option during volatile economic times. This is according to AAA, which is keen to encourage investment in alternative assets – particularly sustainable, socially responsible projects in emerging markets. Brazil’s average annual GDP growth rate is over five per cent, making it one of the fastest growing economies in the world. “Brazil is proving extremely popular with fund managers at the moment,” claimed Mr Johnson. “It’s a been a major success story and proof that investors can really reap rewards by opting to put their money into emerging markets.” Brazilian real estate has also shown major signs of growth in recent months with more and more investment opportunities opening themselves to foreign investors who want to buy up some property in the sun-soaked country. Others are developing new property to fulfil demand for homes and holiday apartments in popular holiday destinations. The tourism trade in Brazil has gone from strength to strength since the country’s economy started to recover. The UAE government claims that Al Muhairi is expected to return to Brazil next month to take part in further discussions about investing in the agribusiness sector in the country.
