We began our activities within M Square Investimentos in 2007, with the launching of the M Square Ações FIA Fund. In addition to investing in Brazilian public equities, M Square Investimentos also had a division focused on international investments, with a separate and dedicated investment team since the beginning of our activities.

We seek returns over 3-5 year cycles with the following characteristics:
