Bradesco Capitalização ended the fourth quarter of 2014 in 1st place among the capitalization bond companies, due to its policy of transparency and of adjusting its products based on potential consumer demand and consistent with the market changes.
Concerned with providing products that better fit the most varied profiles and budgets of our customers, Bradesco Capitalização has a product portfolio ranging by payment method (lump or monthly), contribution term, periodicity and value of premiums that meet requirements and
expectations of customers.
Combining a pioneer spirit with business strategic view, Bradesco Capitalização has launched onto the market products concerned with socioenvironmental causes, in which part of the revenue goes to projects with this purpose. In addition to offering to customers the possibility of creating a financial reserve, Capitalization Bonds with socioenvironmental profile seek to raise our customer’s awareness about the importance of this theme and allow them to participate in a noble cause that benefits society.
Bradesco Capitalização currently has partnerships with the following institutions: (i) SOS Mata
Atlântica Foundation (which contributes to the preservation of biological and cultural diversity of the Atlantic Forest, stimulating social and environmental citizenship); (ii) Amazonas Sustentável Foundation (which contributes to the sustainable development, environmental preservation and improvement to the quality of life of communities that benefit from preservation centers in the state of Amazonas); (iii) the Brazilian Cancer Control Institute (which contributes to the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer in Brazil); and (iv) Tamar Project (created to preserve sea turtles).
In the Property Insurance segment, the focus on large brokers and Corporate and Middle Market customers was maintained. This results in renewal of the main accounts, whether in leadership or participation in co-insurance. Also note the excellent performance of the Engineering Risks segment: the partnership with the Real Estate Loan area has enabled new insurance contracts from its customer base.
Despite strong competition in the Auto/RCF line, the insurer maintained its fleet at approximately 1.7 million vehicles, guaranteed by the maintenance of competitiveness, mainly due to the establishment of a refined and segmented quoting process. Another important fact relates to improvements to current products and the creation of products for a specific target market. Among them, it is worth noting the launch of the First Vehicular Protection of Bradesco Seguro (Bradesco Seguro Primeira Proteção Veicular), exclusive to Bradesco’s account holders, which helps, through the Day and Night Support services, new vehicles and vehicles of up to 15 years of use.
Mass insurance targets individuals, self-employed professionals and SMEs. The launch of new products combined with the continuous improvement to methods and systems has contributed to maintenance of customer base.
