What we are
BrD – Brasil Distressed Consultoria Empresarial S.A. is a Brazilian company which specialises in investing in distressed assets, purchased at a discount to face value.
Assets are purchased from financial institutions, investors, suppliers and other creditors.
We are interested in purchasing individual loans or portfolios which are no longer strategic for the seller.
BrD is focused primarily on the corporate segment and will consider credits on any borrower in
After a purchase, we initiate collection proceedings and will strive for a swift settlement through careful negotiations and creative solutions.
As part of a settlement agreement we might consider accepting certain goods (payment in kind) or an exchange for other credits that the borrower or guarantor hold. Another option is the sale of the asset to other investors.Our standing and investment decisions are, among others, inspired by the thoughts of Benjamin Graham, considered to be Warren Buffet’s mentor, who said:
“The investor is neither right nor wrong because others agreed or disagreed with him; he is right because his facts and analysis are right”
Our investment decision is based on an analysis of the current situation of a particular asset and the options available for a quick resolution. We avoid getting involved in the historic background and the emotional legacy of a given transaction.
Given the high financial and operational risk of our activity, BrD focuses on investment opportunities that will generate above-average rates of return generally found in the financial market.
