Capital Market History


This project aims to identify, organize and disseminate relevant documentation for carrying out studies on the history of regulation of the Brazilian capital market, from the 19th century to the present, particularly its legislative and regulatory evolution.


The material collected during the execution of the other projects at MFCap-FGV will be gradually organized and made available on theWeb sitecore, allowing other scholars and researchers to have access to documents and sources identified and used. All materials are available exclusively in electronic media and those originally obtained in physical media will be digitized.


Each set of documents is accompanied by a brief presentation of the material available for research.   Whenever possible, links to documents available in publicly accessible databases will be maintained. If this type of connection is not possible, the files will be hosted by MFCap-FGV, indicating the source.


If you have any additional material related to the following topics and wish to use MFCap-FGV for its dissemination, please contact those responsible for each topic, as indicated below.
