Efficiency in an Inefficient Market
How much time have you spent trying to resolve simple tasks in Brazil?
From our years of experience in Brazil we find that simple tasks (telephone, Internet and service providers) can prove very painful to fulfill. If we delve deeper into complex issues such as banking, foreign exchange, legal support, tax and business accounting the pain increases exponentially.
Empire was created from identifying the needs of local and international clients who have cross-border relationships with Brazil. In order to guarantee that we work in our clients best interest we act as a consultant to evaluate from an independent perspective our clients personal or corporate inefficiencies. We use our depth of experience, contacts, and cross-border knowledge to obtain the best solutions.
Relationships & Results
The foundation of our business is based on personal client relationships. We believe in doing business face-to-face, looking people in the eye and shaking hands. Building healthy relationships requires honesty, transparency and trust. Our clients contract our services knowing that our sole interest is their satisfaction and results. As we are not tied to banks, funds, platforms, accountants, lawyers etc. you can be sure that we are working for you and not them.
Have you ever wished that you could have more bargaining power when negotiating with banks, obtaining insurance, purchasing real estate, negotiating credit/fees? Well this is what we do! Most clients are unaware of all the hidden fees and costs involved when doing business. Services such as banking, investing, insurance, legal services, etc. are sold at high premiums whilst paying commissions to brokers and middle agents to your expense.
We deliver results by eliminating the brokers and middle agents. Through our collective client volume we can leverage your position to get you the best conditions possible for any type of negotiations.
Through Empire you keep more of what you earn and earn more on what you keep.
Brazil’s real advanced as President Michel Temer sought support for a bill to cap spending while a rise in raw-material prices spurred a jump in currencies of commodity-producing nations. The real climbed 1.2 percent to 3.2202 per dollar at 4:24 p.m. in Sao Paulo, extending its gain this year to 23 percent.
“The expectations for the local political scenario are pushing up the real,” said Italo Abucater, the head of foreign-exchange trading at Icap Brasil, who expects the real to rise to 2.9 per dollar by November. “Commodities and the positive external scenario are also contributing to the currency’s rise. Let’s just hope these good winds continue blowing.”
The dollar posted its longest rally since March against the yen as U.S. service companies expanded in September at the fastest rate in almost a year, leading traders to ramp up bets that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in coming months. The greenback advanced for the seventh straight day against Japan’s currency as the sign of strength in the world’s biggest economy followed comments from Fed officials that revived speculation the central bank is getting closer to tightening policy. Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said Wednesday that one rate increase by year-end is likely if data continue to improve, while Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker said he saw a case for raising rates.
The pound slid to a five-year low against the euro as traders reacted to speculation that Britain is facing a so-called hard Brexit. Sterling was little changed versus the dollar, after setting a fresh 31-year low earlier, following reports on Tuesday that British Prime Minister Theresa May would not give the financial services sector any special favours in talks to exit the European Union. Declines this week were sparked by her Oct. 2 remark that the two-year withdrawal process would begin in the first quarter of 2017.-
To qualify for amnesty, account holders have until October to show the cash they hold abroad was legitimately earned and doesn’t stem from corruption, trafficking or any other illegal activities. Politicians and current public servants can’t apply — an especially telling footnote in a country rife with accusations that top lawmakers colluded in the Petrobras scandal.
A Sao Paulo lawyer, a former public official, said he earned his overseas cash from corporate consulting work he did 15 years ago. When the client insisted on paying his fee using offshore accounts because of liquidity problems at home, he said he reluctantly agreed but didn’t alert tax authorities and has fretted about it ever since. For him, the fine and belated tax — about $45,000 on his $200,000 holdings — is a small price to pay for finally getting on the right side of the law.-
The International Monetary Fund’s steering committee on Saturday called on member countries to use all policy tools to support a global economic recovery that continues “slowly and unevenly.”
“Overall, uncertainty and downside risks are elevated, while longstanding headwinds persist,” the International Monetary Fund and Financial Committee said in a communique.
“We reinforce our commitment to strong, sustainable, inclusive, job-rich and more balanced growth. We will use all policy tools – structural reforms, fiscal and monetary policies – both individually an collectively,” it said.
The group of 189 countries repeated their pledges to refrain from competitive currency devaluations and to not target exchange rates for competitive purposes.
“We reaffirm our commitment to communicate policy stances clearly and resist all forms of protectionism,” they said in the statement, also pledging to “reinvigorate” global trade.
The IMF statement said that 26 member countries had pledged $360 billion in bilateral financing that can be used to supplement the Fund’s normal lending resources.
The members agreed with Managing Director Christine Lagarde’s plans to delay the next review of the Fund’s quota, or shareholding, system by about two years. They pledged to complete the review by no later than October 2019, compared with an original timetable for completion in 2017.
The last quota review, completed in 2010 but only ratified by the U.S. Congress in late 2015, resulted in a greater share for China, Brazil and other major emerging market economies.-
