Banco Santander Brasil SA plans to expand its team of 122 private bankers by as much as 20 percent this year as Brazil’s economic growth fuels demand for wealth- management services.

The private-banking industry in Brazil ended 2010 with $224.3 billion of assets under management, a 23 percent increase from 2009, according to the Brazilian Association of Financial and Capital Market Institutions, known as Anbima. The number of clients rose to more than 63,000 by year-end from about 57,000 in December 2009. Assets under management at Santander Brasil’s private bank rose 25 percent in the period. The minimum investment is BRL 3 million at Santander while some other Brazilian banks include customers with more than BRL 1 million in investments as private-banking clients. (source: Bloomberg)
