A Brazilian woman has been appointed as the head of a newly formed bank to tackle the country’s rampant corruption, which has resulted in the impeachment of President Michel Temer.
Maria Rosellosoa, a professor of finance and public policy at the University of São Paulo, is set to take up the post in the first months of 2018.
The appointment comes after months of political instability, with the impeachment proceeding in March and the resignation of the previous president, Michel Temere, following the collapse of his re-election campaign.
The new bank will be based in São Paolo, the capital of the state of Minas Gerais, and has been working for years to improve the functioning of the countrys largest financial centre, which is also where the bank’s headquarters are located.
Ms Rossellosoa said the bank was committed to tackling the country s most serious corruption problems and was committed “to protecting the reputation of the bank and its investors, especially those who invest in Brazil.”
“Our goal is to achieve financial stability and sustainability, and that is why we have taken the initiative to start our bank,” she said.
“I am a scientist and a technologist and have worked on projects that have created a new generation of innovative technology,” Ms Rossellasoa added.
“We have the technology to provide the most transparent, transparent, and transparent bank in the world.
It’s the best in the business.”
The bank is going to provide financial stability for our people.
Our aim is to help the government of Brazil and all the people in Brazil, which have been hit the hardest by corruption, to recover.
“The bank’s executive director, Maria Marta Rodrigues, said she was looking forward to working with the new bank’s new board of directors and staff, who will be drawn from the broader finance sector.”
Our first goal is not only to help our colleagues to improve their business but also to work with them to create the best financial services in the country,” Ms Rodrigues said.
Ms Rodrigues added that the bank will work with its partners in the private sector to promote the development of Brazil’s banking sector.
The decision was welcomed by the country ‘s opposition, which called the appointment “an important step forward”.”
It’s a new day for Brazil,” opposition leader Ricardo Alves told a news conference.”
Maria Rossellósoa will bring to the banking industry the right experience that the government has always needed in order to address the corruption crisis.”Ms Rosellósão also pledged to improve transparency and reduce the amount of money laundering that is rife in the Brazilian financial sector.
