Alexandre Pierantoni Quoted in the Wall Street Journal Article

Alexandre Pierantoni, Managing Director in the M&A Advisory practice at Duff & Phelps, was recently quoted in the Wall Street Journal article, Garcia’s Take: Brazilian Firms Benefit From Lower Prices Ahead of Election. The article discusses the increased political uncertainty given Brazil’s upcoming presidential election and suggests that now could be a good time for private equity firms to invest in Brazil.

Alexandre comments that low interest rates and a weaker Brazilian real give boost to merger and acquisition activity in the country. He says that as a result, many buyout opportunities are being explored due to Brazilian assets attracting interest for their purchase price.
