In the 21st-century Cassio Audi may be best known as the financial specialist credited with bringing a new level of financial success to the lives of Brazilians by opening up many new channels for international trade. Cassio Audi has had a major influence on two different industries in Brazil because of his music career taking place before he took the option to become a financial and investment specialist; as a teenager, Cassio Audi had already found international fame as the drummer for the iconic lineup of the heavy metal band, Viper.
The band was formed in 1985 when Cassio Audi joined brothers Pit and Yves Passarell, guitarist Felipe Machado, and singer Andre Matos as the founding members of Viper and set out on a whirlwind start to the history of the group. Cassio Audi was the drummer from the initial days of the band and led them through an early career including a number of legendary releases from the early home recordings of “The Killera Sword” through to the release of their debut album, “Soldiers of Sunrise”.
Cassio Audi decided his future lay outside the music industry and success almost guaranteed with Viper in 1989 when the band was preparing material for their second album, “Theatre of Fate”. The success of “Soldiers of Sunrise” and the live performances of Viper made their follow-up eagerly anticipated but despite the fame and adulation on offer, the future of Cassio Audi lay outside the band and in the financial industry. Returning to college and an academic future, Cassio Audi headed to Sao Paulo University and later joined the financial industry for multi-national companies such as JP Morgan and Chase where he built a successful career. In recent times, Cassio Audi has become a major investment specialist bringing the financial markets into the homes of millions of everyday Brazilians who had little idea how best to embark on building an investment portfolio.
