Press Release ( - SAO PAULO, Brazil - Aug 11, 2017 - The interest of Brazilians to know the possibilities of the Financial Market is gradually increasing nowadays. Technology has helped more and more people to discover new ways of investing. In addition, the performance of savings accounts as a way to invest money has come up short of the expected in Brazil.

It is foolish to imagine that the program is attractive only to older investors. Young Brazilians have also participated more and more in the modality. There are already more than 160 thousand investors enrolled in the Tesouro Direto between the ages of 16 and 25 years. Since June 2016, the increase in the number of people in this age group has surpassed the level of 140%.

Experts believe that the reasons that have made the Tesouro Direto win the preference of thousands of Brazilians are mainly security, ease and good profitability.

Because this shown democracy, young Brazilians are seeing the possibility of investing beyond the savings account. Even those who do not have experience in the subject, are still in college or starting a professional career can apply in the Tesouro Direto, and thus it is possible to prepare financially for the future.
