Behring then became a partner in the largest private-equity firm in Latin America, GP Investimentos, from 1994 to 2004. There he learnt about investing and mergers and acquisitions from his mentor, the billionaire Brazilian financier and the principal of 3G Capital, Jorge Paulo Lemann. From 1998 to 2004, he ran América Latina Logística (ALL), a private sector railroad company with 13,000 miles of track in Argentina and Brazil.

In 2004, Behring co-founded the global investment firm 3G Capital and he remains the managing partner. The company has offices in New York City and Rio de Janeiro. Behring is chairman of Restaurant Brands International, the Canadian holding company for the American fast food restaurant chain Burger King and the Canadian coffee shop and restaurant chain Tim Hortons.

In December 2014, The Washington Post reported that by moving its HQ to Canada, Burger King could save up to US$1.2 billion in tax over the next three years. In August 2014, Behring had said, "This is not a tax-driven deal ... It's not being driven by tax rates".

Behring is chairman of Heinz, and will be chairman of the merged Kraft Heinz.

He is a director of Anheuser-Busch InBev.

The magazine Latin Trade calls Behring, "one of the most prominent representatives of a new generation of aggressive financial investors and managers of consumer-oriented services".
