Banco de Bogotá, Colombia’s oldest financial institution, instructed Davis Polk in the reopening of $500 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.250% subordinated notes due 2026, pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933. Simpson Thacher advised  the initial purchasers. 

Banco de Bogotá is a subsidiary of Grupo Aval Acciones y Valores, the largest banking group in Colombia. It also owns the largest pension and severance fund administrator and BAC Credomatic, a leading Central American banking group. Banco de Bogotá is the second-largest bank in the country.

Partners Nicholas A. Kronfeld and Gregory S. Rowland led the Davis Polk team in London and New York which acted for the Banco de Bogotá.
