To achieve that, it is necessary the existence of a communication channel that allows the issuer to position the company and build trust and credibility among the investment community.

That is why, is gratifying for the BVC to recognize the issuers who voluntarily adopted the objective criteria established by this exchange in its regulations, which seek to reflect best practices in the aforementioned areas.

The foundations of the IR Recognition are:
