Bozano Investimentos resulted from the merger in 2013 of three complementary investment firms, BR Investimentos, an independent asset management firm with a focus on private equity, Mercatto Asset Management, a more traditional asset manager focused on equity and fixed income products, and Trapezus Asset Management, an alternative asset manager focused on quantitative strategies. Cia Bozano, as a minority investor in all three firms, promoted the merger of the three to create Bozano Investimentos.
