tip of iceberg?

For the manager of Trópico Investimentos, Fernando Camargo Luiz, the increase in withdrawals from fixed income funds with daily liquidity is worrying because it could have a greater impact on the private credit sector, since managers may have to sell the securities in their wallets to pay redemptions, putting downward pressure on the value of these bonds in the secondary market.

“This is just the tip of the mountain, the situation hasn’t started to get worse yet,” Luiz says.

The executive recalls that, in the case of investments in Americanas debt securities, the loss is greater and has forced the managers to lower the credit to PDD (bad debt provision), as these securities must be included in the company’s judicial recovery plan .

BB Gestão de Recursos, which last week made a provision for PDD in the portfolios of Americanas, points out that shareholders who request the repayment of funds while the provision lasts “will not be entitled to the possibility of recovering the loss, in case of its possible cancellation”, highlighted the manager in a material fact to the CVM (Securities and Exchange Commission).

For a manager of a large financial institution, most of the losses on funds have already been priced in by the market. “We should have an impact on fund performance this month, but portfolios will recover their performance later on,” she said.

According to this manager, the number of ransom requests has cooled down, but the volume of withdrawals has not affected, so far, the functioning of the credit sector. “You spreads of stocks rose slightly, but we are not seeing a credit crunch in Brazil,” he says.

Americanas got its judicial recovery request approved on Jan. 19. The company now has 60 days to file a court-supervised recovery plan.

When contacted, executives did not respond to a request for an interview.
