In the Fixed Income class, only two types yielded above the CDI (0.38%) in November, in line with the segment’s weak performance. Medium and long-term profile types were the most affected. The Fixed Income Long Duration - Investment Grade, for example, lost 0.22%. In the Balanced-Mixed class, the movement was dispersed, but only the Macro type saw negative return (-0.53%). Almost all Equity class types gained in November. The Free Portfolio, which has the largest assets in the class, returned 2.16%.
