To make his larger vision a reality, Mann co-founded Dynamics Search Partners that recruited staff for private equity firms and hedge funds. The company was called Dynamic Search Partners.

In fact it is considered to be one of the country’s largest.

But personal success has never been all Keith Mann wanted. He wants to help other people be successful as well.

Dynamic Search Partners also works with a community organization called Uncommon Schools. Through this organization, Mann and his staff helps children to learn the skills they’ll need to succeed in college.

Like most college graduates, Tabar was hoping to land a position with a top firm, but he never imagined he would be a part of one of the most prestigious law firms in the world, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. Tabar joined the team in 2001 as an Associate and quickly learned the ropes in the capital strategy and business development department.

Brazilian Financial Expert Igor Cornelsen Offers Advice About Investing in His Country

In a recent article, Brazilian banker Igor Cornelsen offers solid advice to investors interested in Brazil. The world’s eighth largest economy seems well poised for increased growth in 2015, says the noted financial advisor. He bases this evaluation largely on the potential for infrastructure growth in what is South America’s largest economy. Additionally, there is the presence of an abundance of natural resources. In fact, Brazil has so many products that some are not even available to the outside world. Cornelsen sees much potential in this economy.

There is a downside. The article sees the continued populist economic policies of President Dilma Rousseff as a negative. GDP growth has been at a rate of only about 2% on average over the last six years. Rousseff demonstrates an intent to stay the course that the article perceives as slowing the once-rapid pace of growth.

Nevertheless, Cornelsen says that the upsides outweigh this problem. Brazil remains a smart investment choice for 2015. Those with some inside knowledge of how the system works will do best, he believes. Thus, Cornelsen offers three important tips for anyone hoping to invest and profit in the Brazilian economy.

The advice for investors is as follows:

  • Meet locals because most business takes place on a personal level.
  • Accept that there is a lot of bureaucracy involved in every transaction.
  • Be prepared for varying foreign currency transaction rates set by the government.

Anyone hoping to profit from the growth in Brazil should read Igor Cornelsen’s article in detail at
