The investment club is a group of people who come together to invest in shares of Brazilian companies, and then become members of these companies.

For start investing, you need to gather at least three people and get an administrator. The administrator may be a stockbroker, a securities dealer or a bank. Investment clubs must also have a charter to regulate their activity.

The club administrator shall take care of the documents and records needed to open the club, as well as manage the Stock Portfolio. The choice of investments to be made can be made by the investment club manager and the investment club manager will be accountable for the results these applications are having.

Investment clubs must follow the standards, rules and restrictions proposed by the BM & FBOVESPA to ensure its operation in accordance with the law. Therefore, it is important to consult with a broker or your bank's investment industry before setting up your club.

The maximum number of club members is fifty, and no single participant can have more than 40% of the total membership. Quotas represent the division of money the club has to invest.
