Económico offers, since 2005, specialized Investment Banking services through
its “Gabinete de Banca de Investimento (GBI)”. GBI is a Banco Económico
department with cross activity among commercial (Corporate, Top Corporate, Institutional and
Private Banking clients) and product areas (Financial Markets,
International) providing its clients a comprehensive and integrated range of financial
services with increasing sophistication and assisting them on business development, in Angola and other geographies.
Following Banco Económico multi-product and
multi-specialist strategy, GBI provides a diversified range of specialized services, namely, medium and long-term structured finance solutions for
public and private entities, with emphasis on the most active Angolan sectors: financial, real
estate, mining and manufacturing, building materials, energy, transport,
distribution, beverages, tourism, agricultural and agri-business.
Along with this activity, GBI is also
responsible for the Angola Invest, a Governmental Program, in partnership with
the Angolan banks, to support the new domestic entrepreneurship (micro, small
and medium enterprises or MSME) and promote the economic diversification
throughout the country.
With the establishment of the Angolan
Stock Exchange (BODIVA), Banco Económico, through GBI, intends to enlarge its
range of services to capital market activities, either in the primary market
(organization of initial public offers and listings on both debt and equity
market segments) or the secondary market (securities brokerage on the stock
exchange) as a future trading and settlement member of BODIVA. For this
purpose, Banco Económico presented to the Comissão do Mercado de Capitais (CMC),
the application for registration as securities intermediary agent and is
waiting for approval.
GBI relies on a highly qualified, motivated
and skilled team. Beyond its local origination and transactions structuring
capacities, GBI relies on its extensive network of international contacts, in
particular on its relationship with Haitong Securities Co. Ltd. (former BESI),
present in the main international financial centers (London, New York, São
Paulo, Madrid, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, etc.), with the ability to access
international investors interested in investing in Angola.
