Um construtor de pontes: o legado e os segredos de um embaixador empresarial

Roberto Teixeira da Costa, president and founder of the Arbitrage Chamber of the São Paulo Market and founding chair of the Brazilian Securities Commission (CVM), has published an e-book titled A Bridge Builder: the Legacy and Secrets of a Business Ambassador.

The book follows da Costa's professional career as a Brazilian businessman, economist, and scholar. He reflects on his numerous experiences in the industry, including as president of CBM, founder of Brasilpar, the first venture capital company in Brazil, and chairman of the Latin America Business Council. In recounting his journey, da Costa shares the different lessons he learned from his challenges and triumphs.

Tomas Zinner, former president of Unibanco and longtime colleague of the author, noted that da Costa has "left a rich legacy of innovative rules, practices, and regulations that really marked the beginning of the capital market. It is not modest to say that Roberto is the father and grandfather of the Brazilian capital market."
