BTG Pactual picks minority stake in wealth management platform Perfin

By Johney Amala

Brazilian investment banking company BTG Pactual has reportedly bought a minority stake in asset manager and wealth management platform Perfin.

Perfin will continue to be led by its current partners Ralph Rosenberg, Gaspar Gasparian, Daniel Tucci, Alexandre Sabanai, and Jose Moraes, Brazil Journal reported.

They will remain in charge of its investment process and business management.

Other deal details such as the size of the stake and deal consideration were not disclosed.

Perfin has $4.11bn (BRL21bn) under custody and manages approximately BRL6.5bn in equity and infrastructure funds.

The firm is expected to benefit from BTG’s investment platform BTG Digital. The deal is also said to be in line with BTG founder André Esteves’ plan to ramp up the company’s exposure to recurring fees deals.

Previously, BTG took a minority stake in alternative asset manager Kawa Capital. It also provided seed capital to establish Clave.

Last year, a report said that BTG is planning to raise $380m via share sale to accelerate its digital retail banking operations.

Recent moves by other Brazilian firms

This May, Brazilian crypto asset manager Hashdex reportedly secured around $26m in a new funding round from investors including SoftBank and Coinbase.

In April this year, a report emerged about French banking group Credit Agricole offloading its Brazilian wealth management unit to Banco Safra for an unknown sum.

The same month, UBS reportedly acquired the remaining 40% in Brazilian multi-family office Consenso, with plans to double the number of advisers.
