Sérgio Moro is a Brazilian federal judge best known for the high-profile case ‘Operação Lava-Jato’ (Operation Carwash), a money laundering and corruption scheme involving several high-profile politicians and business executives. He applied in Brazil the same method used in the ‘Mani Pulite’ case in Italy.

His expertise of judicial and financial matters led him to be invited to the judicial team of another massive Brazilian case: the ‘Mensalão’, which involved the buying of votes in the Brazilian National Congress and included, at least, seven political parties.

In 2016, he was listed 13th in Fortune’s List of World’s Greatest Leaders, was included in Time’s 100 Most Influential People and ranked 10th in Bloomberg’s list of 50 Most Influential People in the World of Finance.
