From soccer fields to Florida's real estate market

Former Brazilian National Team captain Emerson Ferreira Rosa offers consulting services to help investors conquer America

Who has never thought of "retiring the football boots" and spending the rest of his life at the beach? After spending several years playing soccer and living in Europe, Emerson Ferreira da Rosa, who was the captain of the Brazilian National Team in its Penta-winning campaign in 2002, has managed to combine the best of both worlds. He continues working, but now works as a businessman in the sunniest state of the United States, beautiful Florida, more precisely in the city of Miami.

And just like him, many Brazilians in love with the white sand beaches and the blue sea fill the place. Even with the rising dollar, the demand for real estate continues strong and for a good reason: after all, South Florida is a great place to live, work, and invest. The population has grown by more than 300,000 inhabitants in the last five years, with 75% of these coming from other states and countries.

However, making investments or even purchasing a property in another country is not an easy task when one decides to do it alone, because if the person doesn't know the laws and how this market works, he/she may lose great opportunities. To help these Brazilians, Emerson and five friends founded International Business Consulting (IBC), a consulting company specialized in investments, mainly in the real estate sector.

The discipline, dedication, and attention to every detail that the former star acquired in the fields are now also present in IBC, which today has a business portfolio that brings together 44 companies under its management, 30 million dollars in foreign exchange transactions via the Central Bank in 2019, 45 million dollars in Real Estate transactions (real estate deals in the US), 30 investors, and 4 million investments in companies.

The team also has leading experts who help investors in various parts of this process. Francisco Moura Jr., founder, CCO and CMO of ATM Club, an ATM investment club in the USA; Gabriel Souza, who has been working for over 15 years as a real estate broker in Florida, developer of real estate projects for investors; Leandro Araújo, CEO of Trust Network Corp, an exchange broker that represents several banks and brokerage houses in Brazil and abroad; Nilo Mingrone, COO, lawyer and founder of ATM Club; and Raul Pereira Neto, lawyer and founding partner of Akila Administradora Imobiliária.

IBC's partners point out as the main differential for investors who seek guidance the fact that it is a consulting firm specialized in the Brazil-United States relationship, which knows the challenges and the best paths in the operation and development of the international strategy.

In the Real Estate area, IBC offers solutions for the curation of projects and investment opportunities in the real estate industry; connection of investors to ideal market opportunities, based on price, location and demand criteria; and asset protection, analysis and optimization of the client's property and real estate portfolio.

The company also offers advisory services for the remittance of international currency by means of foreign exchange operations with the largest financial agents, duly registered with the main government agencies, enabling the client to have his or her money available anywhere in the world, in a safe, fast, and legal manner. Depending on the type of operation, the client's registration may be directed to a bank or a broker, always seeking the best price, agility, and transparency in the process.

For those who wish to set up holding companies and/or family offices - organizations that manage the assets and finances of families that have many businesses - IBC does the technical tax, corporate, shareholders or quotaholders agreement and succession process study; structure analysis, within its nationalization and, eventually or if it is already the case, its internationalization; use and revision of the corporate means used, adequacy and/or restructuring; real estate asset evaluation with technical criteria, made by professionals specialized in the real estate market; performance and results study, current and possible to be obtained; access to a vast collection of opportunities in an exclusive network of properties and investments exclusive to IBC.
