After the resounding lowering of rates by the Central Bank, which affected the returns not only of fixed terms but also of extremely liquid mutual funds (FCI), Savers and companies were left with almost no instruments to defend their pesos from still high inflation.

FCI industry relaunched “tailor-made” funds for this new situation: they offer a daily performance and can be redeemed on the day, but at a rate that can be 10 percentage points superior to that given these days by the so-called money market.
