SAO PAULO Dec 4 (Reuters) - Grupo BTG Pactual SA and Brazil's deposit guarantee fund FGC signed a memorandum of understanding on Friday giving Latin America's largest independent investment bank access to tap 6 billion reais ($1.6 billion) in funding.

In a securities filing, BTG Pactual said the credit line will be backed by an unspecified pool of loans and be available from Friday. A holding company headed by the bank's top seven partners, helped to arrange the financing for BTG Pactual, the filing said.
