Brazil's Grupo BTG Pactual in talks with Generali for BSI sale

SAO PAULO, May 14 (Reuters) - Grupo BTG Pactual SA, Latin America’s largest independent investment bank, is in exclusive talks to buy wealth management firm BSI from Italian insurer Generali SpA, according to a statement by Generali.

Sao Paulo-based BTG Pactual, controlled by billionaire financier Andre Esteves, is seeking the purchase to add more fee-related activities to the fast-growing banking empire he has built since 2009, according to a source familiar with the Brazilian bank’s plans.
