Retail Banking Country Snapshot: Brazil 2016

, Published: Dec-2016
Report Code: VF0143CI    Report Format: Electronic PDF


The Brazilian banking sector is highly consolidated, with a handful of large banks controlling a significant market share. Product ownership rates are high, particularly for current and savings accounts. Both younger and older age groups use branches often. Internet penetration in Brazil is low, and hence providers need to maintain a multi-channel approach or focus on specific geographical areas in the country. Consumers are generally conservative in their choice of provider, with a bias towards those with which they have an existing relationship. With new regulations being introduced by the Central Bank of Brazil, the market has opened up to new entrants to encourage greater competition within the sector.
