INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Márcio A. Cypriano'

Cypriano wanted to bring the bank more clients, which he did by expanding clientele from the low and middle end into the high end, and by increasing services for low-income customers. He maintained the bank's emphasis on retail banking while making the company more transparent. He made Bradesco the first bank in Latin America to offer online banking (lowering the company's operating costs in the process), acquired Banco Mercantil de Sao Paolo and made the bank more profitable.
