1) National Monetary Council - CMN RESOLUTION No. 4670, OF 6/14/2018

Amends Resolution no. 4444, of November 13, 2015, which sets the rules for investment of the funds in the technical reserves, provisions and funds of insurers, capitalization companies, open supplementary social security entities, and local reinsurers, the rules for investments of funds required in Brazil to guarantee the obligations of the admitted reinsurers, and the rules for the portfolio of the Individual Retirement Fund Program (Fapi).

CMN Resolution no. 4444, of 2015, amended by CMN Resolution no. 4633, of February 22, 2018, established a schedule for the reduction of the minimum average term for renegotiation (PRC) that would begin at the end of September 2018, until March 2010, when it will no longer be required.

Before CMN Resolution no. 4633, of 2018, the Open Supplementary Social Security Entities (EAPCs) and the insurers, to avoid the transfer of the interest rate risk to the insureds/participants, purchased long-term fixed-rate bonds (to comply with the PRC) with hedging via derivative, synthesizing post-fixed bonds, which contributed to the slope of the yield curve, negatively distorting the premiums of these papers.
