Shares as an Investment
If you want to invest in Oi’s shares, we recommend that you seek information on the website of the BM&F Bovespa and the CVM Investor Portal. If you do not feel secure or are unable to do this yourself, we suggest you approach an investment professional through a financial institution or securities broker-dealer or engage the services of a consultant to help you with your investments.
If you decided to invest through a commercial bank at which you have a current account, you just need to speak to the manager of your branch asking for guidance regarding the investments you want to make. Some banks even offer this service to people who do not have a current account with them. The bank will then conduct the business through its stockbroker.
