BTG Pactual starts operating in Portugal
BTG Pactual, the largest investment bank in Latin America, hereby announces the start of its operations in Portugal with the opening of an office in Lisbon. In principle, the focus will be to serve and attract clients from the Wealth Management area, which has approximately US$40bn under management. The operation will be headed by Ricardo Borgerth, a partner with 16 years’ experience in Wealth Management at the Bank.
“We were already remotely serving a number of clients in Europe, many of whom in Portugal due to the migration of Brazilians there. The idea behind opening our office is to be closer to these people and to offer new clients all our sophistication, expertise and returns – traits that are already widely recognized. Our target is to triple the current amount under management in the next 3-5 years”, stated Borgerth.
BTG Pactual´s Wealth Management division has operations in Latin America, the US and, now, in Europe. The Lisbon operation will also serve clients that live in other countries in Europe, offering services such as Wealth Planning, Family Office, Portfolio Management, Alternative Investments and Corporate Advisory. The Bank gives access to an open platform, offering proprietary and third-party products whilst always seeking the best returns based on each client´s profile.
In 2019, BTG Pactual´s Wealth Management area received awards in 18 categories from Global Finance, Euromoney, World Finance, PWM and Latin Finance, including “Brazil´s Best Private Bank” and “Latin America´s Best Private Bank”.
