Innovative, vibrant and energized, a new group of companies has emerged from Latin America with domestic, regional and international growth aspirations. Fueled by long-term prospects, these companies require access to both local and international capital markets in order to maintain growth. Against this backdrop, LatAm debt, both IG and HY, has become increasingly attractive, creating more opportunities for crossover investment and participation from a broader group of global investors.
Citing this upward trend in HY issuance and growth company financings, LatinFinance will hold The LatAm Growth Companies & High Yield Forum. The Forum will introduce and connect the region's most promising growth companies and HY issuers with investors, bankers, ratings agencies and advisers from across the US, Canada, Europe and the Americas. Interactive panel discussions and presentations will be complemented by private 1-1 meetings to enable discussion of specific issues, challenges and opportunities.
