WALL STREET CLEANERZ
Brookfield Asset Management Inc. is a Canadian asset management company that manages a global portfolio valued at over $150 billion, invested on behalf of clients. The firm's assets are concentrated in property, renewable power generation, infrastructure and private equity. The Brookfield name was not widely known outside of investing circles until more recently when it came into the news mainstream as owners of Zuccotti Park , the home to the Occupy Wall Street movement. The company was originally founded in the 1890s as a builder and operator of electricity and transport infrastructure in Brazil; the company's earlier name of "Brascan" reflected this history ("Brasil" + "Canada"). The company provided electricity and tram services in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and was known as "The Light," short for Brazilian Traction, Light and Power Co. Ltd.
