Brazil’s Bolsonaro says he can keep central bank chief Goldfajn in the job

SAO PAULO, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Brazil’s far-right presidential frontrunner Jair Bolsonaro said on Saturday that he could keep acclaimed central bank chief Ilan Goldfajn in the job.

Appointed as central bank chief in June 2016, Goldfajn has kept a tight lid on inflation and was considered the best central banker by magazine The Banker for taming inflation in Latin America’s largest economy.

Goldfajn is preparing to step down by the end of the year, Bloomberg reported on Thursday, depriving the country’s incoming president of a widely respected steward of the economy.
