SAO PAULO, May 8 (Reuters) - Brazil's BB Seguridade Participações SA, the insurance unit of state-controlled Banco do Brasil SA, beat first-quarter profit estimates on Monday after robust revenue from retirement plans and insurance brokerage transactions offset the impact of declining interest rates.
Brasilia-based BB Seguridade earned 992.8 million reais ($313 million) in net income last quarter, compared with a consensus estimate of 959.260 million reais. The company, which disclosed the information in a securities filing, neither provided data for recurring net income nor return on equity.
