Persio Arida, the co-founder of the fast-growing
Brazil-based BTG Pactual global asset management and banking
group and a former governor of the Brazilian central bank, is
to replace his partner Andre Esteves as a keynote speaker at
the forthcoming EuroHedge Summit that will take place in Paris
later this month.
Esteves will be unable to travel from Brazil as BTG
Pactual's hotly-awaited IPO - one of the most
keenly-anticipated flotations in the global financial world for
several years - is now due to price on 25 April, the day when
he was scheduled to speak in Paris.
Instead his co-founder Arida, who is the chairman of BTG
Pactual Asset Management, will fly specially from Brazil to
Paris to give the keynote address at the Summit on the same
date and time - 25 April...
