The bank is setting up its UK home at Heron Tower, with 500 square metres of office space for its small brokerage operations and new corporate and private banking operations.

It will also begin to do some treasury operations out of London, with its European back office remaining in Luxembourg.

Bruno Davila Melo Boetger is the director responsible for overseeing the London launch and visited various London sites before plumping for 110 Bishopsgate.

In the end, the decision was easy, he says. On a site visit to Heron’s Tower he was delighted to discover the top floor restaurant, Sushi Samba, which offers a fusion of cuisines including Brazilian.

The client hospitality opportunities, let alone the benefits for homesick Brazilian bankers, seemed too good to refuse. "I immediately signed the contract," he says.
