The unfolding environment for Latin American financial institutions is complex, full of both challenges and opportunity. The regionalization of the banking sector continues apace, new debt structures are emerging to satisfy funding needs and new regulation, and asset disposals to cover domestic capital requirements offer fresh opportunities to gain market share. However, tighter credit conditions present funding challenges and reduced spreads, spurring innovation from issuers, investors, and bankers alike.
To be held in New York City, Bank Finance LatAm will connect LatAm FI and NBFI issuers with investors, bankers and advisors for high-level discussions on capital market funding strategies, innovative treasury solutions, regional M&A and evolving regulations through panel discussions, expert presentations, and private 1-1 meetings.
