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.

SFLA - Structured Finance in LatAm / Project & Infrastructure Finance Summit

The structured finance landscape in Latin America has evolved significantly over the past decade as tightening credit conditions, both in the region and across the emerging markets, have forced LatAm banks and borrowers to deploy more innovative financial products to meet their funding requirements at competitive terms. Meanwhile, a massive infrastructure build-out to support long-term growth is underway across the region – but securing financing for each project, from local financiers and international banks to multilaterals and bond markets, often requires highly complex solutions given a range of risks to lenders, investors and developers alike. Against this backdrop, LatinFinance hosted its Structured Finance in Latin America/Project and Infrastructure Finance Summit at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on September 28-29 to explore the evolution of Latin America’s structured and project finance markets, and to assess the outlook for further development in 2017.

The 9th Infrastructure & Sub-Sovereign Finance in Mexico Summit

LatinFinance returned to Mexico to host the 9th annual Infrastructure and Sub-Sovereign Finance in Mexico Summit in Monterrey. This conference provides the most essential platform for gathering the leaders of Mexico’s infrastructure marketplace to address its growing sophistication and the progress made by Mexican states since the country launched its historic reforms. While progressing towards realizing the ambitious reform programs that hold the potential to propel Mexico towards a brighter future, a tough domestic economic and political climate present huge challenges for further progress. A lackluster economy, combined with budget deficits, a slump in oil prices and a devaluation of the currency have all led to intense pressure on public sector budgets – making the country’s infrastructure development goals all the more challenging, and presenting new tests for federal and local governments in terms of financing projects, issuing debt and courting investment.

Peru’s new finance minister Alfredo Thorne delivered one of his first addresses to an international audience, and laid out his administration’s ambitious agenda.

Investor confidence has soared since President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski took office this year.
