JACOB SAFRA, founder

The Bank is run and named after Safra, an enterprising and cosmopolitan family that is in the banking business for more than 175 years. Since the beginning of its operations, Safra established one top priority: protect the net worth of its customers. This priority was incorporated into the Bank’s corporate culture and is reflected in its fundamental principles: careful risk management, conservative credit approval policy, strict internal controls, operational efficiency, and deep knowledge of its customers.

These principles required that its employees gained expertise level to be at the forefront of the banking business and able to develop tailored solutions to customers. That is how the Bank has successfully undergone many economic cycles and is able to operate with high liquidity, record the lowest delinquency rate among the five major banks in Brazil, and have a renowned wealth management, in addition to keep launching new solutions, like SafraPay – Safra’s electronic payment solution that has arrived to revolutionize the market.
