In Propria Persona
Much has been written about business mogul, philanthropist, and serial entrepreneur Daniel Fernandes Rojo Filho, who owns and operates over 50 companies across the globe from his headquarters in Orlando, Florida. Recently heralded as the Brazilian Personality of the Year by FAME Magazine, Filho brings success to everything he touches.
Daniel Filho has been described as a workaholic who uses the world’s time zones to his advantage as he manages companies in the United States, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and Hong Kong, to name a few. Those time zones let him connect throughout his day and into the night with his employees and operations staff, helping him stay on top of his diverse portfolio. Perhaps his biggest achievement is founding DFRF Enterprises, a wealth management business that helps private clients grow their wealth with a range of holdings, including:
• Precious metals

He has also been an investment management trustee as well as a financial consultant and chairman of Platinum Bancorp.
Filho received a Master’s degree in International Business Management from Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) Brasil.

According to the Global Go To Think Tank Index in 2014, FGV ranked 18th in the world in categories including:

This immersive educational experience at one of the best business schools in the world gave Filho many advantages as he embarked on a quest to establish his own mark in business.

For all of these projects, Filho’s team of experts analyze available opportunities, investing where it is prudent and backing those projects that show promise for cash flow and growth.
One of the most exciting of DFRF’s new projects involves bio-energy. The company is funding studies to determine if algae could be the next big energy breakthrough, as it is easy to farm, grows rapidly, and can be refined into fuels or other energy products efficiently.
