The BNDES System

The BNDES has three integral subsidiaries: FINAME, BNDESPAR and BNDES PLC. Together, the four companies comprise the BNDES System.

FINAME’s resources are earmarked for financing purchase and sales operations and exports of Brazilian machinery and equipment, as well as imports of goods of the same nature produced overseas. Its activities are developed in conjunction with the collaboration of the BNDES, which in turn is responsible for FINAME. However, the management of this agency is responsibility of its Administrative Board.

BNDESPAR is a business corporation, which has been established as an integral subsidiary of the BNDES. It carries out capitalization operations of undertakings controlled by private groups, while abiding by the BNDES’ plans and policies.

Among the other goals, the subsidiary is responsible for contributing to the strengthening of Brazil’s capital market by expanding the offer of securities and democratizing the ownership of company capital.

For further details on the structure of BNDESPAR and FINAME, please refer to the Basic Legislation of the BNDES System.
