Morgan Stanley has appointed Alexandre Falcao to its Latin America equities research team, where he will lead the group's mid- and small-cap company coverage effort across a variety of sectors including food, healthcare and education.
Mr Falcao will report to Dario Lizzano, Morgan Stanley’s head of research and sales for Latin America. Mr Falcao comes to Morgan Stanley from Merrill Lynch, where he was a senior analyst of mid- and small-caps for Latin America. He received a BS in mechanical engineering from the Universidade de Sao Paolo.
Morgan Stanley said that Mr Falcao’s appointment serves as a complement to the comprehensive research coverage that the firm already maintains with respect to Latin American large-cap companies, and forms part of its strategic priority that was initiated in mid-2007 to add key hires in Latin American sales and research.
Mr Lizzano said: Alex is a seasoned analyst whose impressive track record and varied sector knowledge will enhance our ability to deliver market-leading products to our Latin American clients.
