Summary:

From the economic powerhouse of Brazil, to the resource-rich countries of Chile, Columbia and Peru (the Andean Region), to rapidly growing Mexico, Latin America’s five major markets are a strategic destination for money management. With more than $2.2 trillion in institutional assets, they are attracting the attention of asset managers and financial service providers around the world. The size and long-term growth prospects of these markets, as well as their concentrated number of increasingly sophisticated institutional investors, are among the reasons why these markets stand out.
