10/12/2018

Questo progetto si concentra sulle aziende brasiliane. O Programma Elite di Borsa Italiana - La borsa di Londra si prepara al mercato di medie dimensioni dei prestiti alternativi. L’Istituto per lo sviluppo dei mercati di capitali – IDMC, partner esclusivo di Elite, programma internazionale di supporto allo sviluppo di business e raccolta di risorse finanziarie creato da Borsa Italiana - London Stock Exchange Group, e la GM Venture firmano partnership per sviluppare il programma su San Paolo. IDMC e GM Venture lavoreranno assieme per implementare e promuovere il programma ELITE a San Paolo, come parte della rete globale di Elite, fortificando l’ambiente degli affari, fomentando la crescita delle medie e grandi imprese pauliste, la realizzazione di operazioni di fusioni e acquisizioni e l’accesso al mercato dei capitali. L’obiettivo è lanciare un primo gruppo di aziende pauliste già nel 2019 che parteciperanno al programma. Paulo Angelo Carvalho de Souza, CEO, IDMC: “Avendo dedicato più di una decade al rafforzamento dell’ambiente e della cultura del mercato dei capitali in Minas Gerais, l’IDMC considera la partnership con la GM Venture un passo primordiale per la nazionalizzazione del programma Elite Brasil. Il lancio di Elite è una rivoluzione di come le società del middle market brasiliano saranno appoggiate nel loro sviluppo, crescita e preparazione all’accesso del mercato dei capitali impattando decisivamente per lo sviluppo economico del paese. Essendo l’Italia il principale mercato di Elite nel mondo, avere a fianco IDMC la GM Venture, con larga esperienza nelle relazioni commerciali e di investimento tra Brasile e Italia, è un grande contributo alla integrazione di Elite Brasile nella comunità internazionale per approfittare pienamente di tutte le opportunità presenti nel programma.” Graziano Messana, managing partner GM VENTURE: “GM Venture è una società che opera a San Paolo dal 2006 e amministra gli interessi di oltre 30 filiali straniere che hanno investito in Brasile curandone direttamente tutti gli aspetti finanziari e gestionali. Ci rendiamo conto che queste società che amministriamo hanno un fattore competitivo rispetto alle imprese locali perché accedono ad un costo del denaro molto basso, forti del supporto delle loro case madri straniere. Partecipare al programma ELITE può fornire alle aziende brasiliane fonti di finanziamento alternative a quelle locali e aprire scenari per operazioni straordinarie con gruppi stranieri, permettendo loro una rapida crescita combinata con training e tutoraggio. Siamo molto lieti di avere chiuso questo accordo con IDMC e crediamo che questo programma di Borsa Italiana – Gruppo LSE sia veramente disruptive in un mercato, quale il Brasile, in cui il costo del denaro è così alto.” Articolo completo (in portoghese): https://ansabrasil.com.br/brasil/noticias/economia/noticias/2018/12/07/idmc-e-gm-venture-firmam-parceria-para-lancar-elite-em-sp_42400a83-5449-4eb1-9d62-5c8319ec1efd.html

From the maxi-privatization opportunities for orders for over 1,000 Italian PMI
03/12/2018

The article today on the topic of opportunities and investments in Brazil on the daily Avvenire. The Brazilian economic situation is in deep evolution after the elections of last October have consecrated President Jair Bolsonaro, a debated and widely discussed figure, who promised a massive privatization plan of over 400 state-owned companies during the election campaign. The new economic course, as announced, will also go from a gradual opening abroad of the state, with a gradual rapprochement with the United States, and from the reduction of the fiscal deficit. "We come from the deepest crisis of the last 50 years, with rates of almost -3.5% of GDP in 2015 2016, inflation of over 10% and interest rates in real terms of real economy of 20% to month, "explains Graziano Messana, founder of Gm Venture. "The economy has now started to break out of the recession, and we expect + 1.5% of GDP and + 2.5% for 2019". The idea of the new government is to redesign the economic plans, starting also from the geography of the alliances. "In a recent speech, the president said he wants to favor relations with the US, Israel and Italy. ", continues Messana, who in Brazil with Gm Venture manages the Italian branches of large companies and SMEs, for a total of about 30 companies. The attractiveness of the country is strong, "the exchange rate is a point in favor", a call for those who want to invoke. About 1,100 Italian companies are now present in Brazil and according to Messana the current political and economic conditions could help to create new possibilities. The sectors that identifies being with the greatest potential are agribusiness, Internet of things (IoT), fintech and furniture. "Agriculture grows historically by + 4% per year, companies are looking for innovation and technologies that can be applied to their sector In Italy there are companies that have interesting solutions but that do not have an outlet market. Then there is the IoT. Among the areas of application "health, that is the whole hospital that does not have an integrated system between the private and public world and insurance for repayments. Elesmart city: in Italy we have both experiences and technologies, they do not, and have appetite of industrial domotics for example, on the security front, the country is insecure but cannot use only armed guards, it needs technology, it serves general new generation security ". Fintech side, "there are Italian companies that have developed alternative payment systems, micro-loans between people, and they are interested in understanding how to enter Brazil with a perspective in the sector that in the next ten years is exploding". Finally, there is the large furnishing and furnishing compartments sector, especially for offices, a field still to be explored where only 13 Italian companies are active. For Messana, the winning strategy to break through is to "adapt to the specific demand of the country, without selling only its own products from the collection at the same price as the Italian price list". The Brazilian market "is complex and dense with bureaucracy: we provide the right support to encourage entry, but on 1 project that arrive, we discard 8. Only strong projects are winning and able to compete".

GM Venture: Brazil, reward on the stock exchange with the liberal agenda of Bolsonaro

Comment from our MD Graziano Messana on the outcome of the elections. GM Venture: Brazil, reward on the stock exchange with the liberal agenda of Bolsonaro by Graziano Messana * (Il Sole 24 Ore Radiocor Plus) - Milan, Oct. 29 - Since the first declarations after his election, the new Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro has reaffirmed loyalty to the principles of the constitution and economic development of the country. The Asian stock exchanges welcomed the electoral result positively and the Sao Paulo Stock Exchange of Brazil did the same. The economic fundamentals remain positive and I think we must continue the favorable trend of foreign investments in this market The liberal economic agenda of the economist Paulo Guedes is in line with the expectations of the markets. Work on social security reform and privatize first. The stock market reacted well today again a bit 'as in the first round of elections. Asian markets anticipated the result with good performances with EDFs such as Singapore and Tokyo. The Exchange performed + 3% and then returned mainly because the operators made profits as they had already positioned in recent days. From the point of view of the real economy instead there is an idle productive capacity, accumulated in these years, which will certainly be allocated with recovery and at no cost, but this obviously does not mean that investments are not needed, only that there is an extra lever that it will be used. * founder of GM Venture "The content of the news and information transmitted with the title" Word to the market "can not under any circumstances be considered a solicitation to the public savings or the promotion of any form of investment nor personalized recommendations to any form of financing The analyzes contained in the news transmitted in the specific section are elaborated by the company to which the subject expressly referred to as the author belongs The press agency Il Sole 24 Ore Radiocor declines all responsibility for the truthfulness, accuracy, and completeness of such analyzes and therefore invites users to take note with attention and due diligence of the above stated and represented by the company ".
