Nov. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Celfin Capital SA, a Chilean financial services firm, has put on hold plans to offer broker- dealer services in the U.S., La Segunda reported, citing Chairman Juan Andres Camus.

Celfin received authorization last week from U.S. regulators to provide broker-dealer services, the Santiago-based newspaper reported. Celfin, which is negotiating a merger with Brazil’s Banco BTG Pactual SA, may use the license in the future, La Segunda quoted Camus as saying.
