Private equity focusing on the long term in LatAm, say panellists
Despite being buffeted by corruption scandals and slowing economies, Latin America has seen a recent influx in long-term and sector-focused investors, heard delegates at Latin Lawyer’s 8th Annual Private Equity Conference, held in New York on Friday.
Latin America has become more attractive to investors in 2017 after a challenging 2016, said Santiago Rubin, managing director of investment banking at Goldman Sachs. “Inflation has come down, currencies have come back and commodity prices have rebounded. These factors are very important for investors.”
