Sao Paulo-based Modulo, which builds b-to-b security software for banks, will use the capital for marketing and technology development. The monetary value of Merrill Lynch Global Emerging Markets' stake is undisclosed. The unit's parent is New York-based Merrill Lynch & Co., which has a powerful Latin American institutional network.
