					AAA Backs BNY Mellon on Brazil Investment Recommendation

Investment experts at organizations including Alternative Asset Analysis
(AAA) and BNY Mellon ARX, claim that Brazil is becoming an increasingly
attractive prospect for investors in the run up to its hosting of the
2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.

Boston, Massachusetts, June 28, 2011 -- Investment experts at
organizations including Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA) and BNY Mellon
ARX, claim that Brazil is becoming an increasingly attractive prospect
for investors in the run up to its hosting of the 2014 World Cup and the
2016 Olympics.

This is according to analysts at BNY Mellon ARX, which runs an equity
fund in the Latin American country. A senior portfolio manager at the
firm, Rogerio Poppe, said that people are increasingly open to investing
in the very quickly emerging economy.

He explained that investment funds and companies based in the region have
done all they can to encourage foreign investment in Brazil by
demonstrating that it does offer a stable option for investors. He said,
“We have worked hard to gain the clearest possible picture of how the
Brazilian government and the monetary authorities will approach the issue
of the current inflationary pressures the country is facing, so the
recent round of monetary policy tightening was to be expected.”

He added that, although some changes may occur as a result of the
changing government, the overall outlook is positive, but cautious. Poppe
added, “While we remain extremely optimistic over the long term prospects
for the economy, tighter monetary policy may put temporary pressure on
some of the companies in which we are invested.”

AAA is an advocate of foreign investment in Brazil and particularly
promotes the opportunities it offers for those interested in an
alternative and ethical investment. AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony
Johnson, who has over a decade of fund management experience, said,
“Brazil, along with other Latin American economies like Costa Rica, is
the place to invest at the moment if you are looking for a socially or
environmentally ethical investment. Firms like Greenwood Management are
offering investors the chance to buy a piece of forested land, whose
value will rise and will not be affected by wider economic factors the
way equities are.”

Mr Poppe added that the Brazilian government is expected to continue
investing aggressively in the country’s infrastructure in the run up to
the World Cup and the Olympics. As a result, the managed forestry
industry is set for growth as it provides sustainably sourced charcoal
for the steel sector.
