Itaú's Setubal sees high growth at Brazil's XP

SAO PAULO, June 24 (Reuters) - The price that Itaú Unibanco Holding SA paid for a minority stake in Brazilian independent securities firm XP Investimentos SA embeds “very high growth rates” ahead, co-Chairman Roberto Setubal said on Saturday.

Itaú, Brazil’s largest bank, paid 5.7 billion reais ($1.76 billion) for the 49.9 percent stake in May to grow in the retail brokerage and money management segments. Setubal said during a speech at an event in Sao Paulo that keeping XP as an independent financial firm is good to help deepen capital markets activity in the long run.
