For the second time in a row this year, the Monetary Policy Committee (Copom) of the central bank decided to keep the base interest rate (Selic) at 13.75% per year. The decision was already anticipated by the investors, who took advantage of the opportunity to allocate their resources in it fixed income.
Investments in this category bolstered their gains by a higher Selic rate, a movement that has been occurring since 2021. Even savings, which for many years had not recorded a positive real return, returned to yield a profit higher than inflation.
Considering the current scenario with a Selic rate of 13.75% per annum, What is the return on investment of $10,000? In CDB, Treasury Direct and savings After 12 months?
