LATIN AMERICA, US HISPANIC MARKET: READY, SET, LAUNCH!
A fast-expanding market with over 20 countries and 625 Million people who share similar languages and cultures, also the first minority group in the most important place in the world: USA.
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 2017, foreign direct investments into Latin America and the Caribbean exceeded US$ 167 billion annually with a slim majority of inflows directed to medium-high and high-technology sectors. Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru (most Argentina, and at some point, hopefully Venezuela and Cuba) have received the bulk of recent investments, 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, with China, Russia, Japan, UK, and other important economies always ready to participate as well.
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 the USA, the growing Latino Factor is creating incredible opportunities for cross marketing and distribution and in parallel, we are also witnessing the incredible growth of the LatAm middle class across the globe. 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.
Last but not least, we are entering into the Alternative Investments Educational Business, (Seminars, Courses, Events and more). Our intention consists in closing the gap and bringing talented people into the fascinating Asset Management Community, from Investors, Overall Market Participants, students, and simple individuals, there is a lot that have to be done to continue in the never-ending job of building and believing in a better society.
