The B2 Infra will focus on investing in debt instruments in the sectors of transport, energy, sanitation, and social infrastructures, such as health and education.

Within 60 days, both institutions will announce the Fund structure, in accordance with the rules of the BNDES Credit Funds, disclosed yesterday with Anbima. The product is expected to start operating in the second half of the year.
