A refreshed outlook of the forces shaping Latin America’s politics, economic, social and business environment
The LatAm Outlook Report is a forward-looking, scenario-based overview of the forces shaping Latin America’s political, economic, social and business environment over the next 5 years and beyond. It encompasses an assessment of their likely impact on society, financial and economic development, and trade and investment, through the lens of the region’s 6 major economies (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru).
It addresses key questions such as: How will Latin America recover from the many challenges brought by COVID-19? Will populism continue to soar in the region? Can Latin America meet its environmental goals?
In today’s environment of emergency government spending and programs, flexibilization of procurement processes and controls, and the sudden and unrehearsed shift to mass remote working in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the risk of fraud and corruption has increased substantially across Latin America.
As interest rates remain relatively low and financial liquidity levels remain high, investors with a higher risk appetite will continue to find increased opportunities with distressed assets.
Latin America is set to garner the attention of distressed investors with an eye for a bargain and an appetite for risk.
