Not politics as usual: Investing in LatAm in 2018


Latin American Elections


As three major economies head to the polls in 2018 sharing an unusual level of political unpredictability, what are the stakes for investment in Latin America?

Market conditions and economic growth are positive, and investment into the region is up. While the Latin American market is promising for investors, pivotal elections occurring in 2018 in Colombia, Mexico, and Brazil will underwrite the ease of doing business and the income from equity returns in key sectors. Now more than ever it is important to evaluate investments holistically, assessing the social, economic, and political complexities at play and insuring that your business is well-placed to withstand the unexpected.
