CASHEW (or caju, in Brazilian Portuguese)
is not just our name, it’s our concept.
Long before the discovery of Brazil, cashew was already a staple food for local natives.
For indigenous peoples, cashew means “year” (time),
as they use the tree to measure age by counting each flowering and crop period.
CASHEW CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS:
1) The rich, fleshy stalk used to produce juice, syrup, and sweets;
2) The fruit (NUT), which requires a
time-consuming and meticulous process to produce different varieties – natural flavor, salty, or sugar candied.
Just like cashew, our services are UNIQUE.
the best outcome in a lawsuit and ensuring
safe entrance into the world of investing in legal claims require time,
method, experience, and a tremendous amount of expertise.
At CASHEW CAPITAL, we combine the largest legal experience and legal expertise in the Brazilian market to evaluate lawsuits as investments considering the current economic condition of a continuously declining SELIC interest rate.
