The prospects and prognosis for Latin America's capital markets have never been more uncertain. The current macro environment in developed markets is volatile and the effects on Latin America unknown. At the same time profound, longer-term secular changes in investment, trade and capital flows are ongoing and a global reappraisal of risk between core and periphery continues.
The Latin America Markets & Investors Forum (LA-IMF) will gather a select group of issuers, investors, academics and advisers from across the Americas to discuss and define the prospects for the region's debt, equity and loan markets within this complex, unfolding environment. Interactive panel discussion and debates will be complemented by private 1-1 meetings to enable discussion of specific issues, challenges and opportunities.
Confirmed speakers include:
> Carlos Garcia Moreno, CFO, America Movil
> Marcelo Martins, CFO, Cosan
> Jan Dehn, Senior Strategist and Portfolio Manager, Ashmore

Other participants include:
> CEOs and CFOs from Latin America's leading corporations

> Private equity funds

The agenda has been constructed to explore how economic stability, improved economic fundamentals, and growing domestic markets are driving the evolution of Latin America's markets, and to examine the medium-term prognosis given the evolving macro environment upon:
> LatAm corporate & sovereign debt
> IPOs & secondary equity
> Structured finance and ABS
> Evolving role of private equity
> M&A and acquisition finance
> Natural resource investment thesis
