    Any thoughts on The Economist magazine naming Andre Esteves one of three kings of finance in 2011 (The World in 2011 Edition)?

    I think he is savvy in combining the international business standards with Brazilian “jogo de cintura” if you know what I mean. (How can I translate that? Maybe, flexibility and ability of dealing with the unexpected). Many international banks came to Brazil thinking that they could impose a their view. They did not pay attention in the peculiarities of the market.
