Unibanco, one of Brazil's
largest banks, has a solid history of capital markets activity
dating back to the 1950s, acting both for itself and its
clients. The bank began raising money in the international
markets in the early 1990s and often paved the way in a variety
of currencies for other Brazilian private sector borrowers.
Unibanco has executed 62 different international bonds worth
$7.06 billion in the last decade, many of them innovative
transactions for an emerging market borrower.
Unibanco was at the top of its game last year by launching
an impressive number and variety of bonds ? including dollar
and yen securitizations ? and tapping the equity market for the
first time since 1997. At the end of the year, the bank also
raised $218 million through a subordinated debt issue.
