Portuguese bank BPI logo is seen on their offices in LisbonBy Sergio Goncalves and Shrikesh Laxmidas LISBON (Reuters) - An attempt by Isabel dos Santos to orchestrate a merger of two of Portugal's largest banks has a better chance of success than past attempts by Africa's richest woman to shake up Portugal Inc, analysts and industry sources say. Much of her fortune, estimated at $3.3 billion by Forbes, comprises assets in Portugal. Her foray into banking started in 2005, in partnership with Portugal's richest man, Americo Amorim, when she established Banco BIC, which now has Angola's biggest private branch network and has expanded to Portugal and several sub-Saharan African countries. Dos Santos's intervention comes just months after she tried to take over Portugal Telecom SGSP, a holding company with a key stake in Brazilian telecoms group Oi.
