The 14th Annual IDB Breakfast

Latin America braced for a radical change in the 2017 borrowing environment following the regional sell-off that accompanied the aftermath of Donald Trump’s shock election. With volatility starting to cool off and issuers getting back on their feet, strategies for pricing new deals need to adjust for less liquidity, more volatile currencies and rising US interest rates – putting a series of upcoming issuance plans at competition with each other. Meanwhile, investors who fled the region are now starting to go through a more nuanced period of price discovery as they hunt down opportunities in what many believe to be an oversold marketplace. This roundtable breakfast discussion featured Latin America’s most significant sovereign issuers, they took an in-depth look at the rapidly evolving state of the global marketplace and the implications it bears for tenors, currencies, yields and investor demand for LatAm sovereign credit.
