BTG Pactual Bridges Business Between Brazilians And Saudis

Brazilian investment bank BTG Pactual set up an office in Riyadh , the capital of Saudi Arabia. The biggest investment bank in Latin America is the only one from Brazil with a presence in the largest Arab country in the Gulf region. It serves the six countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC); Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain.

BTG Pactual partner and head of BTG Middle East , Mario Cavalieri, spoke about the bank’s activities in the region in a seminar at the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce (ABCC) headquarters this Tuesday (28).“We set up an office in Riyadh to raise capital from [Saudi] Arabia and other GCC countries for investments in Latin America and attract Latin American investment to the Middle East,” said Cavalieri.

In addition, the bank carries out mergers and acquisitions in the region. The sectors attracting interest to Arab companies seeking to buy companies in Brazil and Latin America are animal protein, infrastructure, aviation, and hospitality , informed Cavalieri. On the other hand, the Arabs have sizeable operations in the energy sector, both in oil and gas and in renewable energies.
