Our portfolio is divided as follows: insurance, financial products, and services. It was developed to meet the most varied personal or individual needs. Our brokers and us stand out in the marketplace because of the scope and the benefits of our products.

Porto Seguro Auto

We have over two million clients all over Brazil, to whom we offer a premium auto insurance category with a number of benefits and services, from parking garage discounts to free diagnostics in repair shops.

Quick Repair Shop

In 2011, we increased the number of quick repair shops (CARs, acronym in Portuguese) by 20 sites. We now have 60 shops all over Brazil. This service, which was launched in 2010, aims to speed up the necessary procedures to authorize vehicle repairs in the event of crashes or other losses. This is recommended for small accidents where cars are able to move. Benefits vary according to the product and the clause that were purchased and are valid provided that a network shop is chosen.

Porto Seguro Pequenas Empresas

This clause was released in 2011 for small businesses with cars that we insured. It includes services and benefits to meet the specific needs of these corporate clients, which range from guaranteed hire cars to an IT help desk to assorted office repairs.

Porto Seguro Auto Mulher

We conducted a poll with women to understand their needs when buying auto insurance and we identified they want benefits that make it practical to reconcile their personal lives, their careers, and their families. Based on results, in 2011, we released Porto Seguro Auto Mulher, which provides female drivers with exclusive services and benefits.

You can buy insurance flexibly, with several options of coverage and deductibles, and the Porto Socorro Mais Mulher clause includes special car maintenance and residential services, discounts at personal wellness establishments, among others.

Porto Vias

We are always trying to improve traffic in big cities and Porto Vias, a free service that provides policyholders and nonpolicyholders with information on the best routes to avoid traffic, is testament to this. Vehicle tracking data make sure that traffic information is 90% accurate. Our exclusive technology makes it easier to check it earlier and choose the best routes based on those that were already entered by the very drivers. This is available in the metropolitan areas of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and it is free. This is the only system to provide information on the average speed of vehicles and the estimated time of arrival, besides the ability to view traffic conditions for the selected route.


Surveys by Brazilian traffic management authorities, such as the Brazilian Federal Department of Motor Vehicles (DENATRAN, acronym in Portuguese), estimate that, every year, 35,000 people died in traffic accidents due to human failure in Brazil. Because of this and according to our policyholder protection philosophy, which aims to provide security to our clients, we launched the Trânsito+Gentil campaign, which was originally deployed in São Paulo State and subsequently extended to all Brazilian states. The campaign preaches politeness as a way of diminishing traffic violence.

Moreover, it involves a number of actions based on several studies on the relation between human behavior and traffic, such as the Driving Anger Scale (Deffenbacher, Oetting and Lynch, 1994), which identified the scenarios that annoy drivers the most. Tailgaters who flash their headlights or drivers who use the right-hand lane to pass you, slow jaywalkers, traffic jams, and drivers who blow their horns too much are among the cases in point.

This campaign gains strength during Carnival, when we traditionally prepare a special road assistance operation with extra tow trucks, locksmiths, taxicabs, first responders, and free diagnostics in free repair shops in the Brazilian states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Bahia, Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul.


Our Azul auto insurance is intended for people that look for no-frills products and quality services at competitive rates. Azul policyholders also have a vacation checkup, which provides with free diagnostics or special rates to promote the preventive maintenance of vehicles at any Porto Seguro repair shop. The latest initiative of this kind started in November 2011 and lasted until January 31, 2012. We wanted to make sure that our policyholders could rely on increased security during vacation trips.

For brokers, in 2011, Azul released several services on its website that were developed to speed up the brokerage process, including online rider calculations.


Porto Seguro Saúde provides São Paulo State companies with end-to-end solutions in the fields of health, dentistry, outpatient care, and occupational health and safety to contribute to a balance between the quality of life of employees and corporate investments.

Highly qualified physicians in a wide network, comprehensive coverage, and a number of benefits, advantages, and programs for disease control are some of the hallmarks of our health insurance product. For dental insurance, management is 100% online, rates are affordable, and we operate across Brazil.

Our occupational health and safety services monitor the health risks of employees, process claim online, and manage actions to reduce the accident prevention factor (FAP, acronym in Portuguese). In order to help control loss ratios, we also offer expert advice on the deployment and coordination of outpatient facilities.


We establish consórcio groups for real estate, cars, and professional equipment. We manage groups composed of people that save money to buy real and personal property.

In 2011, we started trading consórcio bonds estimated between two hundred thousand Brazilian reais (BRL 200,000.00) and four hundred thousand Brazilian reais (BRL 400,000.00), with a fifteen percent (15%) management fee, to increase the alternatives available to client, who are increasingly choosing this type of facility to buy real estate. We have also been providing more facilities for cars. Due to better car sales, we released a new plan, which enables consórcios for premium vehicles ranging from fifty-eight thousand Brazilian reais (BRL 58,000.00) to one hundred fourteen thousand Brazilian reais (BRL 114,000.00) with up to seventy-two (72) months to pay.

Take Your Money to the Right Place Campaign

Launched in July, this campaign aims to highlight the benefits of consórcio and promote it as a smart investment option to purchase real estate. The idea is to show that consórcio provides clients with various possibilities when purchasing vehicles, real estate, and professional equipment, such as low rates, zero-interest installments, and long installment plans. Furthermore, clients are guaranteed to get loans easily and are no more subject to changes in rates because of currency fluctuations.

Policyholders can call up to two (2) trucks within a radius of sixty (60) miles during the term of a policy. Policyholders are now entitled to a tow truck at any distance whatsoever, regardless of the plan they purchased. They are also entitled to a twelve percent (12%) discount on repairs at the Porto Seguro repair shop network.

Itaú Homeowners' Insurance

Since October 2011, Itaú Homeowners' Insurance policyholders rely on Environmental Services, which include Smart Disposal, a collection program for items policyholders no longer use, such as furniture, electronics, and appliances. These items are then sent to an eco-friendly disposal facility. Any objects in good condition are donated to charitable organizations, which make sure they find a socially responsible destination.

This service is available in Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre and their respective metropolitan areas, as well as São Paulo and cities within a maximum distance of sixty (60) miles, such as Campinas, São José dos Campos, Sorocaba, and towns in the Baixada Santista.

In addition, we offer them ecoefficient projects, which give them expert advice on the development of projects to adapt furniture with concepts of bioclimatic architecture, including rainwater harvesting, green roofs, and solar power.
