Established in 1904, even before the launch of the Official Pension Plan in our country, the pension fund for Banco do Brasil employees, known as Previ, is among the largest pension funds in Latin America. With a history stretching back over a century, Previ has always existed with one single purpose: to take care of our people's future.
Previ is a closed supplementary pension entity, and its participants are employees of Banco do Brasil and its own staff. The Institution works to ensure additional security benefits to its participants, in order to improve the quality of life of its beneficiaries and dependents.
Previ is mostly funded by contributions of Banco do Brasil’s employees and the Bank itself, as the employer. Such funds are invested in a diversified manner, following our Investment Policy, which is strictly reviewed on an annual basis to meet the needs of each benefit plan and always aiming to fulfill the purpose of Previ: to ensure the payment of benefits to all of us associates in an efficient, safe and sustainable manner.
Previ's organizational structure is composed of management and control bodies with different roles, which constitute the Corporate Governance system. These bodies are the Executive Board, the Executive Council, the Fiscal Council and the Audit Committee.
The Executive Board consists of six members: Chief Executive Officer, Chief Investment Officer, Equity Director, Security Director, Planning Director and Management Director. The first three are appointed by Banco do Brasil, while the last three are elected by participants and beneficiaries. Check out their resumes:
