Latin America is a continent full of opportunities - especially for companies from Germany, who already built up their business and created about 500,000 jobs in Latin America. However, many medium-sized and family-run companies are still wondering to invest in these region. These companies have a lot of questions such as: Do we know the local conditions well enough? Do we find reliable partners? Stay expenditure, risk and revenue in a reasonable balance?
For all these questions, the Santander Bank is the first point of contact - in Latin America and beyond. The product offers and services of Santander Corporate Banking are aimed particularly for SMEs. As a family-run bank with a long tradition and a value system that thinks in generations, Santander also has the "DNA", that is appreciated by other family-run businesses.

In 15 core markets Santander has built a "International Desk" Team that helps customers to set up their business in other countries. The experts there know their region, give advice on cultural, regulatory and economic cases or provide the right contact person. Another service is the Santander trade portal that provides customers and non-customers of the Santander Bank useful information. As the world's only bank Santander allows all users free access to a number of import and export databases and useful data about the desired country. It is a network platform to find new business partners worldwide.
