A very good company for those that want to invest from Brazil. Even for those who don't want to stress over income tax declarations, they give detailed tax reports! Just copy and paste into the income tax program, you don't need to calculate anything and or waste time. As for the purchase of dollars and trading, it's very easy, dividends fall just falls right in, everything works fine, there's even a web version available,
