SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Brazilian state-controlled lender Banco do Brasil SA (SA:) sees its profits likely to grow 10% in 2020 from this year, its Chief Financial Officer Carlos Hamilton Araujo said on Thursday in a meeting with analysts.

Next year, net income will be boosted by consumer lending and lower loan loss provision expenses, Chief Executive Rubem Novaes said. Still, its total loan book is likely to present sluggish growth as corporate loan book should decline.
