About the event

The Bolsonaro administration has taken office and clearly stated its intention to liberalize the economy and pursue economic reform. Brazilian entrepreneurs are planning for new opportunities in a more dynamic economy. They are also aware that a deep and knowledgeable U.S. investor base is receptive to Brazilian start-ups, especially for financial technology. The combination of these factors is raising expectations for a resurgence of Brazilian IPO’s listing in the U.S.

The distinguished panel exploring the factors that will drive the IPO market for Brazilian issuers, and expectations for 2019 and beyond, included a fintech that is contemplating the benefits of becoming public, a leading advisor to financial technology companies, and a seasoned investor in Brazilian technology start-ups. Brazilian and U.S. counsel will provide legal insights and considerations for companies considering a public offering.
