Students of exclusive Banco Safra program visit BACEN
Students of the course titled “Bank Management in the Context of the Financial Market” – a custom course created by FGV In Company for employees of Banco Safra’s Trainee Program – visited the Central Bank of Brazil (BACEN). Fabio Lacerda introduced the structure, functions and supervisory activities of the regulatory entity.
“We are very honored to have been chosen by Banco Safra as partners in this initiative. FGV believes that training new leaders is crucial to developing Brazil’s financial service sector”, said João Lins, Executive Director of FGV In Company.
According to Lins, Banco Safra’s Trainee Program stands out for its scope and consistency, beginning in the selection process and covering several learning activities, both academically, through the module led by FGV, and in hands-on supervised activities in the actual workplace. All of these classes are integrated by the Human Resources department and coordinated alongside the business areas.
The update course features a class of 40 students led by professor Hsia Hua Sheng during the visit to BACEN. The activity was very rewarding for the young students in Banco Safra’s trainee program, who had first-hand access to the inner workings of a major financial regulation entity, kicking off their careers as ambassadors of best practices and behaviors in the market.
According to Fabio Lacerda – Deputy Unit Head, Small and Medium-Sized Banks II Supervision Management, Banking Supervision Department –, FGV In Company’s invitation for the Central Bank of Brazil to provide institutional support to Banco Safra’s training program is an outstanding initiative that benefits everyone involved.
“Everyone benefits from this technical approach between supervisor and supervised, and I was particularly honored to be able to interact with this class of bright professionals early on in their careers. I honestly believe that providing comprehensive training to new generations of professionals in the banking system is a crucial part of our mission to help build an increasingly ethical, stronger and more efficient financial system”, said Lacerda.
