BNDESWith a market share of over one fifth (21.1%), the Bank of Brazil (Banco do Brasil) was the leader in transfers of funds of the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) in 2009.

A total of 131,400 operations were carried out, totaling 12.3 billion Brazilian reais (US$ 6.6 billion) in loans. The volume was 36.6% higher than in the previous year.

The information was given by the vice president of Credit, Controllership and Global Risk at the Bank of Brazil, Ricardo Flores.
