SAO PAULO, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reiterating its commitment to clients and seeking to implement an improved, more efficient corporate governance strategy in its management process, A1 Investimentos has innovated by joining the Assembleias Online platform, a portal developed by MZ Group through which investors can participate remotely in the meetings of the companies/funds in which they have a stake.

"By joining this tool, we seek to increase our transparency and facilitate the decision-making process, especially for structured funds that we plan to open in 2014. Historically, the level of participation in meetings, in the fund industry, is low, and that is why we decided to include investors in this process in a practical, safe and efficient way," said Marcos T. Machado Junior, Partner of A1 Investimentos.

For Denys Roman, Partner of MZ Group, "Assembleias Online will enable access for A1 Investimentos investors—both national and international—to all documents made available by the company or by the fund, as well as electronic and remote voting on each item on the agenda of the meeting, in addition to other corporate governance benefits."
