Costa Rica Bonds Economy & Policy Corporate & Sovereign Strategy

The future looks even brighter now that Moody’s has anointed the sovereign with investment grade.

"The rating upgrade and GDP growth could help reactivate the demand for credit locally. It could increase foreign investors’ confidence in investing in the country," he adds.

The bank hopes to allow fund transfers using a mobile device.
