#158: The Importance of Corporate Governance in Companies

The evolution of corporate governance, especially in banks and insurance companies, reflects a more robust and comprehensive approach, moving beyond mere regulatory concerns to include customer relationship management, product launches, and cyber resilience. The current landscape demands that financial institutions, regardless of size, not only comply with norms but also uphold governance as a pillar for operation and compliance. Experience in internal auditing reveals the importance of active participation in different company committees, highlighting the crucial role of governance in driving improvements and responding to challenges.

#154: The evolution of the credit supply market in Brazil

The credit market in Brazil is undergoing a revolution, driven by technological innovation and regulatory changes led by the Central Bank.

With the implementation of measures such as Open Finance and the regulation of Direct Credit Companies (SCD) and Peer-to-Peer Lending Companies (SEP), we are moving towards a more inclusive and efficient financial ecosystem. These transformations promise not only to improve credit supply but also to contribute significantly to Brazil's socioeconomic development.
