Campinas, March 2022. Agi hit record credit origination in 2021, reaching R$10,3 bn, which represents an increase of 195.9% compared to 2020. The gross credit portfolio reached R$6,5 bn, advancing 190.4%. Total revenues grew 44.9%, up to R$2,069 bn. This growth was driven specially by the revenue from financial intermediation and services.
The numbers were reached thanks to the buildup of an even more resilient portfolio that, together with a well-defined strategy of Assets and Liabilities Management, took Agi to a new level of revenue generation, level of spreads, product quality and giving access to ever lower funding costs in the long term.
“The word that best defines the year of 2021 is growth. With a profound analysis of the scenario that we were at in the beginning of last year, allied to a capital increase provided by Vinci Partners, we decided to accelerate the initiatives which would warrant us a position of higher sustainability and consistency of results over the next years.” Comments Thiago Silva, Chief Financial and Investor Relations Officer at Agi.

Additionally, in line with the strategy of improving client relationship, the personal loan portfolio for account holders increased 104.4%, and already represents 23.2% of total credit portfolio.
“This movement is fundamental to increasing our participation as the main bank of our customer base, extending the contact and relationship points, leveraging the other business units. It’s worth highlighting that this portfolio which we are accelerating allows cross-selling opportunities of others products and services, which potentializes our financial results.”, says Glauber Correa, CEO of Agi.
