The company currently has 5.9 million active capitalization bonds and 2.4 million clients, and it awarded US$74.5 million in bond lotteries in 2013. In 2012, InformationWeek ranked the company as one of the 100 top industry innovators in information technology. In 2013, Valor Econômico also acknowledged Brasilcap as the largest capitalization company in Brazil in its annual publication Valor 1,000.
