    Hi Yeboc,

    I heard this week that 2 PGA golf courses have passed planning approval to be built north and south of Prair Do Forte so i think your land (salvador) is a very good investment, Shame its not in property as Salvador area has a solid existing tourism base and is increasing every year, people should get around 15% - 20% ROI in Rentals, if not, you've paid over the odds,

    :)Hi Boah,

    You have been busy lately havent you- are you a serious investor or just caught the property bus like a few and then found that you couldnt stop and kept buying more....???? ;)

    Brazil- has an element of risk but is also a long term investment I think- plus it depends on what your budget is and when you intend on selling on!

    Banyan -dont know much sorry but also a longterm option!

    waffled a bit -sorry couldnt help much!!


    See ya D :)

    P.S-If you have the spare cash and take risks then ALBANIA & NICARAGUA will be very rewarding in the long term- investors behind the scenes are starting to make their move!
    Large land plots are the best bet that will really pay off in either the capital cities or beachfront only at this point!!
    Still early days yet- but the earlier the better!!

    Hey D,

    What kind of prices are you seeing in the beach areas of Nicaragua? Are you thinking Nicaragua will be the next Costa Rica?

    :)Hi Greg,

    Not sure as Ive never been to cosat rica before- but Ive heard its faboulous and is drawing lots of investment and traveller interest there!

    The way I see it is it next door to it, shares the same coastline and weather, underdeveloped etc-so why not??

    Ive only seen minimal land and property for sale there at the moment- some nice ebach villas plots with consent starting from around £15-20,000 ( $30-40k)

    So far its a market untouched- and could prosper over the next few years- investors and developers are eyeing it up so its only a matter of time surely??

    See ya D :)

    :)Hi all,

    Brazil at 'full investment grade' in 2008
    Wednesday, 30 May 2007 09:23
    In the next 18 months Brazil is set to reach "full investment grade" Printer friendly version In the next 18 months Brazil is set to reach "full investment grade" a top fund manager has predicted.

    The South American country has received a number of upgrades by investment rating agencies such as Fitch and Standards & Poor's (S&P), and strong economic progress means the country could soon reach full investment grade - making Brazil far more attractive to investors and potentially boosting growth.

    "The ratings upgrades were driven by a steady improvement in Brazil's macro economic fundamentals that had led to the continued decline in Brazil's fiscal and external vulnerabilities," explained Luiz Ribeiro, manager of the HSBC GIF Brazil equity fund.

    "Buoyed by record commodity exports and foreign investment in Brazil's bond and equity markets, foreign reserves have reached a record high of US$122 billion. Meanwhile, president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva remains committed to further reducing these vulnerabilities during his second term in office."

    S&P raised its long-term foreign sovereign credit rating for Brazil to BB+ and its local currency sovereign credit rating to BBB on May 16th 2007. This move followed similar upgrades from Fitch.

    If it achieves full investment grade Brazil becomes open to a large number of new institutional investors and cuts the cost of credit, potentially stimulating faster economic growth within the country.

    And the picture could improve further.

    "Inflation is now under control with 2006 year end inflation of 3.1 per cent being at the lower end of the inflation-targeting band. Interest rates continue to fall and are expected to decline further while credit availability has improved and real salaries have increased," Mr Ribeiro said.

    "Provided that there is no major slowdown in the global economy and that the improvements we have seen to date continue, Brazil should gain its 'full investment grade' status by the end of 2008."

    Brazil is the last of the Bric investment group (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) to reach full investment grade status, with S&P rating India at full investment grade at the start of the year ending a 15-year hiatus.

    Brazil's equity market has risen 262 per cent in US dollar terms in the three years to April 30th 2007.

    See ya D :)
