The Importance of Latin America
iLAfin is acutely aware of the importance of the Latin American region composed of over 20 countries and 625 million people. As the fastest growing minority within the United States, Latin America will surely play a distinct role in the history of the Western Hemisphere for the century to come. The region has historically benefited from global demand for its commodities, but lesser-known thriving domestic consumption and a growing manufacturing and technology sector is fueling unprecedented economic advancement.
Investing in Latin America
By 2017, foreign direct investments into Latin America and the Caribbean exceeded US$ 167 billion annually with a slim majority of inflows directed to medium-high and high-technology sectors. Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru have received the bulk of recent investments, but distressed nations such as Argentina, Venezuela, and Cuba remain poised for monumental shifts. The Netherlands, U.S., and Spain have historically been the largest foreign investors in Latin America with China, Russia, Japan, UK, and other important economies playing a large role as well. Today the region is experiencing the positive impact of the talented forces managing LatAm Governments, Regulatory Agencies, Central Banks, Public and Corporate Pension Funds, Foundations, Endowments, Banks, Family Offices, Fund of Funds, Listed and Private Corporations, Insurance Companies, Private Banking Divisions, Asset Managers, Financial Boutiques, Investment Advisors and High-Net-Worth Individuals.
