Bradesco sees Brazil recovery still fragile, expects better 2019

SAO PAULO, April 4 (Reuters) - Brazil's Banco Bradesco, the country's second largest private bank, sees economic recovery still fragile in Brazil and expects a better financial environment in 2019, chief executive Octavio de Lazari Junior said on Wednesday.

Lazari said the bank expects a growth in loans volume to compensate for smaller returns amid falling interest rates in the country. (Reporting by Carolina Mandl)
