It’s official – the best returns for investment are found in Brazil. According to the latest Bloomberg Global Poll, Brazil is the world’s best investment destination.

The latest quarterly Bloomberg Global Poll released in mid-September ranks Brazil as the world’s number one spot for investment returns. Sharing top place with China, Brazil stands ahead of India in third place and the US in fourth. In the previous June Poll, Brazil came second behind the US, but strong growth and a solid economy have consolidated potential for investment and made Brazil top investment destination.

The Bloomberg Global Poll is carried out among investors, analysts and traders, and provides a quarterly insight into how those in the trade perceive markets for investment. Emerging markets continue to be favourites as highlighted by the fact that Brazil, China and India take the top three positions. One respondent to the Poll pinpointed Asia and Latin America as “providing support to the global economic malaise”.

When it comes to investment, Brazil also enjoys a high degree of confidence – lack of investor confidence in the US along with slower growth were the main reasons stated in the Poll for America’s fall to fourth position. Confidence in Brazilian investments can be seen in the record number of private equity funds entering the country. Since 2008, US$4.5 billion has flowed into Brazilian private equity with flows so far this year running to US$1.5 billion.

Recent examples include BTG Fund Management who has bought the energy company Coomex and several hospital networks, and the purchase of Burger King by 3G private equity fund. One of the largest and longest-established equity funds in Brazil is Advent, a US fund, present in Brazil since 1997, who has purchased fast food companies and duty-free shops.

Confidence in investment in Brazil and emerging markets is also apparent in stock market movements since June this year. Bloomberg reports that the Brazilian stock exchange has increased by 10.56% in the last quarter with India’s Index close behind on a gain of 10.44%. In contrast, the US S&P 500 Index rose by just 3.62%.

As well as attracting investment, Brazil is also seeing huge gains in tourism. Central Bank figures point to US$489 million spending by foreigners during August, more than 7% higher than August 2009. In the first eight months of this year, foreign tourists spent US$3.86 billion, a rise of 11.54% on the same period last year.

Obelisk International is well aware of Brazil’s investment potential and the latest Bloomberg Global Poll mirrors Obelisk International’s ranking of Brazil’s as the world’s number one destination for returns. Profits offered by Obelisk in Brazil (from 50% to 100%) are undoubtedly among the best around.
