History of Confrapar

“confraria”

Feminine noun. Origin in the Latin language

  1. The combination of the Latin terms “com”, meaning “together”, and “frater”, meaning “brother”.
  2. A brotherhood, an association of people linked by a common interest or characteristic, which can also be an association of individuals who practice the same profession.

The management company was born from the firm conviction that technology has a transformative power capable of driving social and economic improvements in emerging markets. Founded in 2008, its origin dates back to the successful investment and sale of the company Takenet to the Japanese group Faith Inc.

Since its inception, the manager has been grounded in solid principles of Ethics and Corporate Governance. Confrapar conducts annual audits and maintains a high-level Board of Directors, ensuring transparency and responsibility in all its operations. This approach committed to ethical values reflects the essence of the word “confraria”, uniting professionals with common visions and goals in pursuit of a better future.
