Title

Get Rich Quick in Rio - Part 1/3

Abstract

In the summer of 2018, several BYU students met with Jim Gulbrandsen - a hedge fund manager for NCH Capital based in Rio de Janeiro. Jim is in charge of the firm’s investment activities in all of Latin America and analyzes data to determine the best possible investments. He has collected data about numerous companies and asked for our help in analyzing it. Our team is looking at the data to determine if there are any trends that will predict profit returns. In this talk we will look at the background information needed to understand our efforts.
