Strong loan book powers Banco do Brasil to quarterly profit surge

Brazilian state-controlled lender Banco do Brasil SA (BBAS3.SA) on Monday reported a 29% leap in first-quarter net profit compared with a year ago, boosted by double-digit growth in the value of its loan book.

Banco do Brasil’s adjusted net income reached 8.55 billion reais ($1.71 billion) during the first three months of this year, while analysts polled by Refinitiv expected 8.69 billion reais.

The lender said the results were helped by the performance of its credit portfolio, “which reflects an adequate mix of risk against return.”
