SAO PAULO Oct 18 BNP Paribas SA is considering
pouring additional capital into its Brazilian unit, to speed up
growth in investment banking and transaction banking in Latin
America's largest economy, the chief executive of its local unit
said on Tuesday.
The Paris-based bank and its subsidiary are discussing the
size and extent of the capital plan, which would preferrably be
made through an equity increase, said Sandrine Ferdane, the
chief executive officer of Banco BNP Paribas Brasil SA, as the
unit is known.
