Global Financial Markets

Sao Paulo - May 17, 2012

As one of the most populous cities on the globe and wealth estimated to reach the sixth highest in the world by 2025, São Paulo has a notable presence in global financial markets. In addition, the merger of the São Paulo Stock Exchange and the Brazilian Mercantile and Futures Exchange created the world’s third largest stock exchange (BM & Fbovespa) and led to ownership in the US-based CME Group. Many experts look to Brazil as the future of economic growth, with an expanding middle class and increasing consumer demand, but how will recent economic commotions affect this growth path? How will São Paulo’s involvement with US and other international markets evolve?

Join a discussion with Chicago Booth alumni and financial professionals in São Paulo who will share their expertise and perspective on the current conditions as well as their views on the future.
