Diversification of investments is a good strategy for your financial security.



You may remember the old saying, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. This saying is particularly true when dealing with diversification of investments. In fact, a diverse portfolio tends to be a smart strategy to mitigate possible losses. At Banco do Brasil Americas you will find a variety of solutions to achieve your financial objectives and to diversify your dollar investments.

Experts point out that variety in an investment portfolio can ensure a greater balance between risk and return. The inclusion of assets in the United States in to this mix increases the chances of boosting gains without excessive exposure to losses, since it is the world's leading economic power and it operates in dollars, a stable currency. The statistics confirm this tendency: according to data from the U.S. Consulate in São Paulo, the number of Brazilian investors in the U.S. market increased by 89% between 2012 and 2017, as shown by a report published on the IG/Economia website (https://economia.ig.com.br/2017-10-13/investimentos-nos-estados-unidos.html).

A wide variety of investments are available to those who do not live in the United States and it is fundamentally important to have the expertise of an investment professional that will always help you and take the time to develop an efficient portfolio.
