Who Are We?

Votorantim Asset Management (VAM) is the asset management arm of Banco Votorantim. Founded in 1999, it is now one of the top ten asset managers in Brazil according to the Brazilian Financial and Capital Markets Association (ANBIMA). It operates in a wide range of investor segments, from institutional and corporate investors to private banking clients, distributors, and international funds and investors.

VAM’s foundations are built of solid values, strategic planning, capacity to execute, and close relationships. VAM is committed to a permanent pursuit of consistent performance and optimal risk-return ratios in all investor segments - institutional, corporate, private, and distribution partners.

VAM’s performance is largely due to its philosophy of developing customized solutions tailored to each investor’s needs and involving innovative structured products such as corporate credit funds, receivables funds (FIDCs), real estate funds (FIIs) and private equity funds (FIPs) - this category comprised R$14.6 billion in assets under management in December 2014. It is also a leader in mutual funds (read here about the awards VAM has won).

In order to avoid conflicts of interest and competing interests, VAM has a strict information barrier policy* to assure a clear separation between the asset management activities performed by VAM and Banco Votorantim’s treasury operations.

VAM’s commitment to this principle is underscored by its adherence to the ANBIMA Code of Regulation & Best Practice for Investment Funds, which goes beyond legal and regulatory requirements by standardizing procedures designed to protect the interests of investors and foster the implementation of international best practices.

* Information barriers (or Chinese Walls) are internal procedures established by the relevant policy to prevent flows of information between specified groups, individuals or departments within the organization. This assures compliance with the applicable legislation requiring that asset and wealth management be completely segregated from other activities.
