Looking ahead

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom partner Filipe Areno and counsel Hilel Pohulanik consider how the region’s political and economic outlook will influence deal activity.

Looking ahead Filipe Areno and Hilel Pohulanik

There are long-term ­reasons to be optimistic about deal activity levels in Latin America. The region is in a cycle of economic recovery, stemming from higher commodity prices worldwide, stronger US growth and the end of the recession in Brazil (and possibly in Argentina, if the government is able to successfully navigate the current crisis). In the immediate future, however, the main challenges could come from a tightening of financial market conditions caused by faster-­than-expected rate hikes and trade protectionism in the US, and an economic slowdown in China. In addition, political instability in Latin America, coupled with the effects of the ongoing corruption scandals in the region, could lead to temporary confidence shocks and delays in investments.
