The Central Bank of Brazil (BCB) announced that the National Monetary Council (CMN) approved Resolution 4,970, which regulates authorization process for the operation of financial institutions and will be effective from July 01, 2022. In a separate update, BCB published the "Normative Instruction," which establishes the procedures for "sending" information on the social, environmental, and climate risks of exposures in credit operations and securities and enters into force on July 01, 2022. The instructions highlight that the remittance of information needs to be through the document provided in the Annex of the Instructions while the information is to be reported every six months. Additionally, BCB announced that a project selected to be part of the first cycle of the regulatory sandbox has passed through the “Lift Lab” for the development of innovative product prototypes. The project is a platform for the issuance and trading of credit securities, especially Bank Credit Notes (CCBs), related to the real estate sector, developed by "INCO Investimentos".
In yet another development, BCB announced that it authorized 74 credit fintech companies to operate in Brazil, out of which 64 have been classified as "Direct Credit Societies" (SCD) and 10 have been classified as "Personal Loan Societies" (SEP). Direct Credit Societies carry out credit operations with their own resources and are authorized to provide additional services to other financial and non-financial institutions, such as analysis and collection of credit for third parties, issuing of e-money and credit card and insurance resale. Personal Loan Societies (SEP) enable peer-to-peer lending transactions, whereby funds received from creditors are directed directly to debtors, after negotiation on an electronic platform.
