About Us

The Firm

BancTrust Investment Bank Limited is a London-based boutique investment bank, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the United Kingdom, and specialised in high-beta credit markets in Emerging Markets. The firm offers capital markets advisory, institutional sales & trading and investment research products and services to corporate clients and institutional investors.

The LatAm Investment Bank in the City

The firm is conveniently located in the heart of the City of London. We believe the firm is better positioned to advise global institutional investors that actively invest in high-beta Emerging Market debt due to the group’s local presence in Latin America.

Our forte is a combination of several factors which include: niche focus, local market intelligence, on-site research, execution capabilities, long term relationships with key policy makers, and a deep understanding of local idiosyncrasy & political developments.

The markets we focus on are typically volatile due to political uncertainty, abrupt changes in monetary and fiscal policies, as well as reliance on commodities. They are generally opaque and have limited access to information and data, and are imperfect, leading to mispriced markets, which generate arbitrage opportunities.
