Private equity draws individual investors

Private equity is starting to attract individual investors in Brazil, according to Pedro Parente, founding partner of EB Captial and former CEO of Petrobras. According to him, the country already has individual investors “without aversion to illiquidity” who are starting to look into private equity funds as a long-term investment option. Mr. Parente ads that with the current low interest rates the segment has “huge space to move forward.”
