Brazil, a relative stable emerging country, offers investors many opportunities to profit from its cyclical economy. You can follow the broad Brazilian stock market with the Sao Paulo Stock Exchange's benchmark Bovespa index (^BVSP).

You can invest in Brazil through:

  • Market Vectors Brazil Small-Cap ETF (BRF), holds small capitalization Brazilian companies and companies that generate at least 50 percent of their revenues in Brazil.
  • iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF (EWZ), a low-fee exchange-traded fund (ETF) mostly comprised of energy, basic materials and financial stocks.
  • WisdomTree Dreyfus Brazilian Real Fund (BZF), a currency income ETF.
  • Individual stocks that trade on United States stock exchanges. Many Brazilian stocks are traded on U.S. stock exchanges so you can create your own customized portfolio. For a complete list of Brazilian stocks traded on United States stock exchanges see BNY Mellon.
