Starting this week, those interested in learning about private pensions have access to a 100% free teaching platform. Brasilprev, the open supplementary pension plan of Banco do Brasil, launched the platform futurEdwhich provides courses on the topic in videos and in podcast.
The first video course, on private pensions and financial planning, is taught by Professor Carlos Heitor Campani, from the Coppead Institute of Administration, at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Organized in three modules, the course has 19 lessons, which total 159 minutes in length.
Among the main lessons of the three modules are the differences in investments in the PGBL and VGBL plans, how they are taxed and the care needed when making the Income Tax. Students also receive guidance to start planning their finances today in a simple and uncomplicated way, with classes on the main types of fixed income and variable income investments.
in relation to podcast, the first episode is 50 minutes long. Also narrated by Professor Carlos Heitor Campani, he presents a video course summary. According to Brasilprev, the idea is that the podcast stimulate student interest in private pension, in order to attract them to these video courses.
With 28 years of experience, Brasilprev’s shareholders are BB Seguros, the insurance, capitalization and private pension arm of Banco do Brasil, and Principal Financial Group, a North American financial institution. Leader in the open private pension market (in which anyone can contribute without being linked to a pension fund), the company has more than BRL 322 billion in assets under management and a portfolio of 2.5 million customers.
