As the CEO of Energizer Captacao S.A., he understands finance and investments, and how the privatization of specific niches of business affect these two sectors. In 1990, the National Privatization Program allowed privatizations to join forces with government-approved economic reforms. The National Privatization Program of 1990 led to the privatization of steel, petrochemical, and aeronautic sectors in 1995 which paved the way to privatizing the telecommunications sector in 2004 with the Public Private Partnerships Act. Felipe Montoro Jens states that, the privatization of telecommunications hinders the production of its services due to governmental regulation.
Aside from being involved in finance, investments, and the private sector, Felipe Montoro Jens’ interests delve into more humanitarian and global issues. He gave his viewpoint on global impacts after the partnership of Brazil with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. Felipe Montoro Jens has a particular viewpoint on reducing the waste level in different states because more waste is equivalent to a decrease in the wealth of a city, state, or country. Brazil’s partnership with the BNDES will hopefully lead to a reduction in waste in Brazil which in turn will help other sectors, financially.
