Debtwire Latin America Forum 2017
December 6, 2017 | JW Marriott Essex House, New York
While many Latin governments have strengthened their balance of payments and local high yield corporates have cleaned up their balance sheets and lowered expected default rates, challenges remain. Argentina and Venezuela are headed in opposite directions with the latter heading into negotiations to restructure its overwhelming debt with international creditors while the former enjoys the fruits of reform. In addition to Mexico and Brazil, four other major elections will be held in 2018 in key Latin American countries, presenting creditors with opportunity and uncertainty. There also remains much deviation in terms of trade, balance of payment and monetary issues for each respective country, in what seems a north-south continental divide in policy. Inflation, commodity prices and critical legal developments in corporate restructuring cases remain serious issues as well.
Please join the Debtwire team and esteemed panelists for a thorough discussion of credit opportunities in Latin America and beyond in 2018.
