Arminio Fraga: Background
Arminio Fraga is one of the most widely respected international economists of our time. His Ph.D. in economics was awarded by Princeton University in 1985. As the Governor of the Central Bank of Brazil from March 1999 to December 2002, his management of monetary policy provided the basis for the country's economic advancement. Mr. Fraga is also member of the influential Washington-based financial advisory body, the Group of Thirty. For some years he worked with George Soros at the Quantum Fund as a Managing Director. He is a founding partner of Gávea Investimentos, an investment management firm based in Rio de Janeiro, and now a subsidiary of J.P Morgan Asset Management. He is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the BM&FBOVESPA, Brazil's securities, commodities and derivatives exchange, one of the largest in the world.

Princeton in Latin America (PiLA) is a non-profit organization that partners with non-profits throughout Latin America to match them with young, public sector professionals seeking full-year fellowships in development work. We are an independent 501(c)3 which is not funded by Princeton University. PiLA placements offer important field experience to recent college alumni who cannot otherwise find NGO work in Latin America and who are eager to pursue careers in development work; no other program like this exists. Therefore, PiLA provides crucial work experience to aspiring public sector professionals.
