4- How do I invest in shares?

Before looking for a Securities Broker, we suggest that investors study the subject through the Bovespa website. The better informed you are on the conditions of the company you are going to invest in, its operations and business risks, the better the investment will be. The São Paulo Stock Exchange (B3) prepared a course on shares in order to contribute to beginner investors’ learning.

Afterwards, the next step is to look for a Securities Broker, which has professionals focused on market analysis, sectors and companies, who can support your decision-making process for the purchase and sale of certain shares. To that end, investors must be clients of a B3 licensed brokerage company equipped with a home broker system, which allows trading stocks on the Internet.
