What's On

Latin America is one of the fastest growing fintech markets in the world, and Brazil in particular is a fertile ground for the sector. According to a study from the Inter-American Development Bank, "Fintech in Latin America: Growth and Consolidation," the number of fintech start-ups in the region has grown to over 1,100, including 380 in Brazil, around one-third of the total.

With a population of more than 200 million, Brazil is a tech-literate market and its citizens are eager to embrace digital banking, lending, payments and other financial services. As fintech adoption is rapidly growing in Brazil, how is the financial industry dealing with the transition? What challenges do fintech start-ups face in the country?

As one of the top-ten economies in the world, Brazil provides enormous opportunities, what do investors need to consider if they are interested in exploring Brazil's fintech and other sectors?

Consul General of Brazil Piragibe dos Santos Tarrago will give an overview of Brazil's current business and investment environment, while Luiz Simione, Strategic Advisor of Fisher Venture Builder, will talk about the rise of fintech in Brazil. Sergio Graneiro, Managing Director, Head of Corporate Finance APAC – Banco Santander SA, will share with members what investment opportunities Asian companies are focusing on in Brazil.
