After a successful entrance into the market, Ebury now plans to further develop its global transaction banking platform for the Latin America market and expand its range of services to better serve companies dealing in this region to meet client demand.
The new office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, gives SMEs in Europe access to a specialist provider of foreign exchange and other corporate banking services in a particularly complex market and access to the wider Latin America region. It also helps businesses within the region simplify international trade.
Ebury’s capabilities allow companies to send and repatriate funds from Brazil, as well as providing foreign exchange protection facilities to hedge against the volatile FX market.
The Brazilian office has also provided European SMEs with local, expert knowledge of the Latin America market which is vital given the specific operational and fiscal characteristics of the region.
