BTG Pactual is the largest investment bank in South America and has experienced four years of record growth in its investment banking business. It has been working in Colombia since 2012 when it purchased Bolsa y Renta, a proud local company with over 50 years of experience in the Colombian market. BTG Pactual is a local and regional leader in M&A, debt, and equity operations. It thrives with a culture of meritocratic partnership and entrepreneurship. It also prides itself on its client-centric approach. In Colombia, it has a strong specialisation in asset management for corporate clients and has over $5bn in assets under management. It also specialises in private banking, financing for infrastructure projects, and capital markets including IPOs and M&As. The judging panels notes that the bank has continued to bolster its local reach and now has offices in Barranquilla in addition to Bogota and Medellin. It is also to be commended for its commitment to innovation. Its BoostLAB startup hub has been recognised as one of the best financial innovation centres in the world. It provides mentorship, networking, and potential financing to successful startups. In November, it also began operations in Colombia under its new banking license, echoing a similar push in other regional markets. This will allow BTG Pactual Colombia to provide the full suite of banking services for its clients. The judging panel is delighted to award BTG Pactual with the 2022 award for Best Investment Bank (Colombia).
