    5 ETFs to Consider for Brazil Exposure in Emerging Markets

    Political and economic factors continue to weigh on Brazil as the country continues to forge on after undergoing an overhaul in its leadership. Last year, with the election of the polarizing Jair Bolsonaro, the message Brazilian voters communicated to the world was anti-establishment is in and traditional politics is out. "A big bounce in Brazil’s yearly industrial production growth (up 7.1% in May) masked yet another broad-based sequential decline (18 out of 26 industrial sectors)," wrote Natalia Gurushina, an economist for Emerging Markets Fixed Income at VanEck.

    Highly Anticipated Pension Reform Could Lift Brazil ETFs

    A cornerstone of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's campaign was reforming the country's pension system. It was those expectations, among others, that lifted the iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF (NYSEArca: EWZ) and the VanEck Vectors Brazil Small-Cap ETF (BRF) following Bolsonaro's elections. Much of the optimism surrounding EWZ and Brazilian stocks earlier this was attributable to Bolsonaro’s plan to reform Brazil’s pension system.

    5 Brazil ETFs to Watch in Early Months of Jair Bolsonaro’s Presidency

    The election of the polarizing Jair Bolsonaro was the message Brazilian voters communicated to the world that anti-establishment was in and traditional politics was out. Brazilian voters went to the polls last Sunday and the far-right candidate Bolsonaro emerged as the victor, racking up 55% of the votes to win the presidency of the largest country in Latin America after beating out leftist Fernando Haddad. Bolsonaro's runoff-election victory came after the first round saw him take the early lead with a better-than-expected 46.7% of the votes, while Fernando Haddad came in second with 28.5%. Bolsonaro is inheriting a bevy of problems he must address during the course of his presidency and the faith of Brazil's populace will hinge upon his success. Of course, Bolsonario's biggest task is to help extract the country from its current economic doldrums, but his election is perceived by market experts as one that leans toward the benefit of the country's capital markets.

    Brazil ETFs Run Into Resistance as Runoff Looms

    Brazilians head back to the polls for an Oct. 28, 2018, second-round election runoff, where it's likely that they will vote in far-right populist Jair Bolsonaro as their next president. Despite the bravado, Bolsonaro has a significant task ahead of him, if elected. Brazil's gross domestic product (GDP), a measure of a country's economic growth, grew just 1% year over year as of August 2018 – analysts had expected an increase of 1.1%.
