Banking

Merchant Banking is a division of Asset Management responsible for managing investments in illiquid assets or sizable stakes in assets listed on the stock market. BTG Pactual has managed investments in the real sector of the Brazilian economy for over a decade. Our global presence and leadership in Latin America have enabled us to create exclusive operations in a whole host of sectors with strong growth potential. Our commitment to clients can also be measured by the single alignment of interests: All BTG Pactual partners invest most (if not all) of their equity in shares of BTG Pactual and in funds managed by Asset Management. Partners invest in the funds under the same conditions (liquidity, fees and returns) offered to clients.

With vast knowledge of the market and a solid analysis base, our Merchant Banking group focuses on investment opportunities in Private Equity, Infrastructure, Real Estate and Natural Resources. Our team has major experience in business management, exclusively targeting the running of companies’ operations. We thus look to combine origination of investments with maximizing companies’ potential. Our team seeks to be present in all stages of the investment, origination and prospecting of business deals, from structuring companies, implementing projects, operational and financial management to divestment.
