lATIN AMERICA: READY, SET, LAUNCH!
A fast-expanding market with over 20 countries and 625 Million people who share similar languages and cultures.
The region has historically benefited from global demand for its commodities, but the lesser-known fact is that strong, growing domestic consumption and a thriving manufacturing and technology sector is fueling much of its economic activity. Once shunned by investors and businesses because of the “boom and bust” nature of many of the region’s local economies, stringent monetary policies have been put in place in many of these countries which have resulted in well developed and capitalized banking systems exhibiting healthy credit. Regional wealth, entrepreneurship and direct investment activity have increased significantly in recent years. By 2015, foreign direct investment into Latin America and the Caribbean exceeded US$ 150 billion annually with a slim majority of inflows directed to medium-high and high-technology sectors. Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru have received the bulk of recent investment, but countries across the entire region are coming on strong. The Netherlands, U.S., and Spain have historically been the largest foreign investors in Latin America.
Today we are experiencing the positive impact of the talented forces managing LatAm Governments, Regulatory Agencies, Central Banks, Public and Corporate Pension Funds, Foundations, Endowments, Banks, Family Offices, Fund of Funds, Listed and Private Corporations, Insurance Companies, Private Banking Divisions, Asset Managers, Financial Boutiques, Investment Advisors and High-Net-Worth Individuals. In parallel, we are also witnessing the incredible growth of the LatAm middle class.
There still remains much to be done to help the region reach its full potential, and LatAm Alternatives is delighted to be at the forefront of our region’s consolidation process by helping market participants and other stakeholders benefit from the upcoming period of unparalleled growth and opportunity.
