PPS operates mostly with Brazilian pension funds. Less than 10% of its portfolio of clients are Insurance companies or corporations.
We provide consulting services in investment, not acting directly with actuarial services, neither with software/program sales.
PPS is focused in providing intelligence and knowledge about the financial and capital markets, domestic and international, development of models of support for investment decisions and participation in investment committees, where our knowledge differential can be better exploited.
We are not focused in large data processing systems, because we believe that such action would result in a loss of focus on intelligence that we seek to develop and put in service of our clientes.
The results of such positioning, amongst others factors, are evidenced by the fact that our founding partner have been elected in four of the last five votes, the best investment advisor of the Brazilian pension funds market.
Our proprietary system, PPS, allows updates to be made without significant costs (usually free of charge), in addition to important customizations to our clients.

Selection of investment managers for liquid portfolios (fixed income, equity and multi, or even liquid international investment funds), using a proprietary model, which includes Quantitative performance evaluation by PPS software, and is supported by qualitative assessment through Due Diligences.
