SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's largest private bank, Itaú Unibanco Holding SA has completed the acquisition of 40 percent of Banco Itaú BMG Consignado SA, specialized in payroll loans, for 1.46 billion reais ($445 million), the bank said in a securities filing on Wednesday.
Itaú already held 60 percent of BMG Consignado, the filing said. The acquisition had been announced in September, but needed regulatory authorization to be completed.
