Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Ricardo Almendra, a partner at Brazil’s Credit Suisse Hedging-Griffo, left the asset-management and private-banking company, according to two people familiar with the matter who asked not to be named because they’re not authorized to speak publicly.
Credit Suisse Hedging-Griffo, based in Sao Paulo, has 51.2 billion reais ($30.3 billion) in assets under management. The company was created in 2006, when Credit Suisse Group AG bought 50 percent plus one of Hedging-Griffo shares for about $294 million in cash.
Credit Suisse estimates it would pay $810 million to exercise its option to buy the rest of the company by Dec. 31, according to the Zurich-based bank’s second-quarter earnings report.
Almendra didn’t return telephone calls from Bloomberg News and Credit Suisse Hedging-Griffo declined to comment through external press relations firm Maquina da Noticia.
