Brazil Financial services

We are invested in SupplierCard Administradora de Cartoes S.A. (SupplierCard) through Patria - Brazilian Private Equity Fund III L.P., which is managed by Patria Investimentos.

We do not hold direct relationships with the companies that investment funds invest in. Instead, we hold relationships directly with the fund. When investing through investment funds, CDC takes an active role as a limited partner to the fund, working with the fund manager to ensure best practices, including in environment, social and governance matters, and investment management oversight.

This investment was made under a previous strategy. We disclose information on all our current investments, but narrative information on our pre-2012 investments, when we introduced a new strategy, may be limited.

SupplierCard is a credit card issuer and acquirer focused on private label cards for business-to-business purchases. The company has agreements with large corporations to finance the sale of goods and services to their small to mid-size clients through private label credit cards.
