Extending our support from Mexico to Argentina

Bank of America Merrill Lynch has proudly served corporate and institutional clients1 in Latin America since 1951, when we opened our first office in Mexico City. Today we have corporate offices in six Latin American countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru) that combine the best local knowledge with the expertise and reach of a global bank. With a history spanning more than 60 years in the region, Bank of America Merrill Lynch offers a complete portfolio of corporate and institutional banking solutions across Equities, FICC (Fixed Income, Commodities and Currencies), Research, Investment Banking, Corporate Banking and Global Transaction Services.2

In Latin America, we are dedicated to building strong economies through investing and giving in the communities in which we operate. Our community investments are focused on creating opportunities to build a better economic future.
