Building strong economies in Latin America

With a presence in Latin America for more than 60 years, Bank of America Merrill Lynch combines local knowledge and global expertise to offer market-leading products and services across Global Banking and Markets. In Latin America, we have offices in six countries serving the needs of corporate, institutional and government clients1.


We are guided by a common purpose to help make financial lives better, and we deliver on this through responsible growth with a focus on our environmental, social and governance (ESG) leadership. ESG is embedded across our eight lines of business and reflects how we deploy capital to drive economic and environmental progress in our communities, including our $125 billion commitment to finance sustainable business activities and our leadership role in expanding the green bond market; how we build trust and credibility through strengthened governance, including our Global ESG Committee and Environmental and Social Risk Policy Framework; and how we create a company that people want to work at, invest in and do business with. Connect with us on Twitter @BofAML and learn more in our 2017 Annual Report.

1While Bank of America’s consumer bank does not have branches or ATMs in Latin America, Bank of America’s US branch offices serve customers from Latin America.
