How to become a member

A group of institutional and independent investors founded the Association of Capital Markets Investors (Amec) on October 26, 2006, with the aim of improving capital markets and advocating in favor of minority shareholders’ rights.

Almost 17 years later, Amec brings together dozens of members, including local and foreign institutional investors and pension funds, with approximately BRL 900 billion in assets under management in the local equity market.

As part of its activities, Amec promotes the best corporate governance practices in the country by:

  • Facilitating the dialogue between industry stakeholders through debates, events, and discussion forums;
  • Engaging with regulators and legislators to propose improvements in legislation and new public policies;
  • Establishing thought leadership as a think tank by creating educational, informative materials, and technical content, and interacting with the press.

Amec’s members have several benefits and institutional support. The Association represents them in public hearings and other regulatory issues and provides exclusive content on technical matters, engagement meetings, and forums to debate corporate transactions, corporate governance, and sustainability affairs.
