About Banco do Brasil
Banco do Brasil is a Brazilian bank, partly state-owned, partly publicly listed at the stock exchange in Sao Paulo. Banco do Brasil was founded in 1808 by then prince-regent João VI of Portugal to finance the kingdom's public debt when he moved from Europe to Brazil. The close relations between bank and state are reflected in the fact that the CEO is appointed by the Brazilian president. The bank offers Insurance, Retail banking and Private equity services.
