Investments in RendA+, a new National Treasury bond aimed at retirement, surpassed BRL 60 million in the first week of trading on B3.
According to the Ministry of Finance, 7,675 investors purchased the product between January 30th and February 3rd. The value negotiated represents 12% of the total number of securities sold in the same period — around R$ 475 million.
The result was considered an “extreme success” by the secretary of the National Treasury, Rogério Ceron. “We will continue working and investing in the product to further boost this growth and help more families realize the benefits that saving some portion of their income can generate in the future,” he said in a statement.
Launched at the end of December, RendA+ is the most recent public bond issued by the National Treasury, aimed at investors who want to save extra resources for retirement.
The product is pegged to inflation plus a real interest rate — currently around 6%, according to the simulator available on the agency’s website.
The main difference in relation to other bonds is in the way investments are redeemed. As the objective is to encourage investors to accumulate amounts over the years to receive them in the future as a monthly benefit, the receipt will not occur at once, but in 240 installments —that is, over 20 years.
Currently, eight conversion date options are offered: 2030, 2035, 2040, 2045, 2050, 2055, 2060, and 2065.
According to the Ministry of Finance, the preferred Renda+ securities in the first week were those for 2030, with BRL 24 million in purchases (40% of the total). Then come the titles for 2035, with R$10 million traded, and for 2045, with R$8.28 million.
Another novelty of Renda+ is in relation to the form of acquisition. Interested parties can schedule monthly purchases of new titles – which would be equivalent to new contributions -, with the possibility of payment via Pix.
The minimum amount to start investing is approximately R$30 and acquisitions are available on the Treasury Direct platform.
In the opinion of specialists consulted by the Sheetthe new product has advantages and disadvantages, but the balance tends to be more positive than negative.
Among the favorable points of the title are the simplicity of acquisition and the lower cost in relation to investments with a similar purpose – such as private pension plans.
On the other hand, the product was considered not very flexible, since it does not allow the investor to define how he prefers to receive income after accumulation. Payment is fixed in 240 installments.

Can I redeem RendA+ Treasury before completing the accumulation period?
Yes, it is possible to dispose of the securities before the deadline, provided that the grace period of 60 days after the purchase of the securities is respected.
