Investing in Brazil

Oscar Decotelli, CEO, Managing Partner and Co-head of Private Equity at DXA Investments, discusses the launch of the company's second private equity fund, "Excelsior II."

Decotelli discusses the firm's focus on small to mid-cap, high growth companies and how the new fund looks for "big companies trapped inside small companies," which need more funds and a bit more guidance from investors. He discusses DXA's investments in Modern Logistics which is the first logistics company in Brazil with its own air fleet. He says a company like that can be exceptional for Brazilian tech as Amazon looks to move into the region.

Decotelli talks issues with regulations that Uber faces in the country, as well as the Brazilian government as a whole, and what that means for the incubation of start-ups.
