Peru’s central bank has increased the limit for investing abroad by the country’s private pension funds, or AFPs, to 32% from 30%, it says. The increase is the first since a hike to 30% from 28% in 2010, and should represent an additional $750m in possible investment. Spurred on by the MILA integration, the AFPs had about 29% of their portfolios invested abroad at year-end 2012. There are four AFPs – BBVA’s Horizonte, Grupo Sura’s Integra, Scotia’s Profuturo and Credicorp’s Prima.
