    When I first visited Uruguay and realised it was for us I went to the Lloyds branch in the Missiones district of Montevideo to set up an account I could operate from the UK to buy a house before we moved over.

    They were just not interested. BROU on the other hand welcomed me with open arms and a new account, internet banking and setting up my Escribana as my Power of Attorney was achieved in less than 30 minutes. Best service I have had in any bank, in any country, where I have an account.

    Chris I would agree with reservations, added to which BROU being a government bank isnt going to go bust as so many Uruguayan banks have in the past or sell out to another bank
