Sheppard Mullin's Nota Bene

Feb 13, 2019

With over 500 million people and the fourth largest collective economic market in the world the Mexican, Latin American, and South American markets hold great opportunity for investment and growth for multinationals. However, because of various incidences of political upheaval and economic changes, it’s important for C-Suite executives to understand the unique changes in each country prior to expansion.

Joining me to share his insight on the changes in Mexico, Latin America, and South America is Co-Founder and Senior Managing Director of LM Capital Group, Luis Maizel. Luis updates us about recent changes in various countries including Mexico, Chile, Venezuela, and Brazil.

What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • Why aren’t Latin American markets treated more importantly?
  • How are tariffs affecting Mexican manufacturers as opposed to US manufacturers?
  • What is contributing to Mexico’s economic market and political environment?
  • How have recent changes in Mexico’s political climate affected foreign investment?
  • How Chile’s political climate has created a steady, safe, and growing economy
  • What is happening in Venezuela and how is it affecting the price of oil?
  • Is there potential in Brazil despite having smaller exports?
  • What types of potential exist in Argentina?
  • For investors that have money in these countries, what should they do now?
  • Why it’s important to pay attention to these Latin American markets but approach doing business with open eyes and ears
