Building a regional stock exchange, piece by piece

What is MILA? A marketing initiative? An order routing system for cross-border trading? With almost three years past since its official launch, MILA, as the project to integrate the Chilean, Peruvian and Colombian stock markets is known, remains in a very preliminary stage of development. Various challenges must be addressed before the exchanges achieve a deeper level of integration. But there are several factors operating in its favor, including the possible entry of the Mexican bourse and the momentum of the Pacific Alliance, an economic integration initiative involving Mexico and the three MILA countries. This report will examine what MILA has achieved so far and where it's heading.

Mining Survey 2014: Accepting the new reality

BNamericas' Mining Survey 2014 shows deteriorating sentiment across most indicators, reflecting players' acknowledgement of the new reality facing the sector - softer metals prices, poor access to capital, lower spending, reduced exploration activity. In terms of investment climate, Argentina has emerged as the worst ranked nation. Chile remains 'the best,' but more fragile as a growing contingent believes the climate could worsen in the coming year.

Oil and Gas Survey 2014: Opportunities abound

While the percentage of survey respondents who said Latin America is a good place for the oil and gas business dipped this year (from 80% to 70%), some 80% said Latin America will be increasingly important as an oil and gas supplier in the coming decade, indicating that while there might be some cause for concern in 2014, the longer term picture remains attractive. This is underpinned by the amount of resources in place, encouraging governments in some cases, and by strong, stable oil prices. Colombia continues to be seen favorably as a destination for oil and gas explorers. Mexico has risen in the estimation of survey takers. Argentina too is gaining significant interest for its unconventional potential, and survey takers were decidedly more favorable about the country this year than last.

Underwriting Latin America's infrastructure build-out

The last few years of economic growth in Latin America have been accompanied by increasing need for infrastructure. As that growth begins to slow, addressing the region's persistent infrastructure gap has become even more pressing if its countries are to increase their competitiveness and build on recent development gains. Enter surety bonds. Although it represents just a small slice of the regional insurance market, this specialty product is an attractive tool for the governments region looking to underwrite the contract risk associated with these generally large-scale projects. The Latin American surety industry is also reaping the benefits a global shift away from bank guarantees as the go-to method of securing contracts.

With a number of projects initiated in 2013 and more to come, Colombia is aiming to shrink the gap in its road, port, rail, and airport infrastructure. More and more opportunities have opened up for private initiative and investment, while authorities are working to overcome institutional barriers and inefficiencies to make the final leap the country needs to boost its competitiveness and continue its recent economic opening.

Into the Isthmus: Consolidation in Central America's banking sector

In recent years, Central America's banking sector has seen a wave of acquisitions by Colombian banks, who have sought new growth avenues beyond their home market. Altogether, once the last pending transaction closes, the Colombian-led M&A drive will represent some US$7 billion in investment. The banks are now a significant presence in the region, in some cases having snatched up the largest players in the local banking system. What fueled this cross-border spending spree, and why did it happen in Central America? Will the Colombian banks keep on buying? Is there anything else left to buy?

Outlook 2014 Infrastructure: Closing the infrastructure gap

Latin America is a long way from investing the amounts that multilateral organizations say are needed to close the infrastructure gap that limits the region's competitiveness. However, in 2014, there will be new business opportunities for global and regional players as a result of the various infrastructure programs launched in countries like Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile. The local capital markets and particularly the pension funds are expected to see much greater participation in these projects.

Coal: The energy that continues to move the world

This report looks at the development of the coal market and projections for use and consumption of the fuel. Coal is the most abundant fossil fuel on the planet and it has stored the energy of the sun beneath the ground for millions of years. The figures clearly indicate that coal is more important than ever. Its characteristics, low cost and abundant supply have yet to be bettered by any other energy source. Since the last decade, coal has become the most important fuel of the economic development of Asia in general and China in particular, a country that has now become the largest producer and consumer of coal in the world. With this outlook in mind, Colombia, which has the biggest coal reserves and is the largest producer in South America, is making significant investments in order to channel additional production of the mineral toward the growing Asian and Chinese markets.

Consumer Credit in Latin America

The Latin American consumer credit market has expanded rapidly over the past 10 years. A combination of strong and stable economic growth, prudent policies and vastly improved investor confidence over the past decade have provided a fertile environment for the market, and we have seen greater access to loans leading to significant changes in Latin American consumption trends. While Chile and Brazil have the most developed markets in the region, the greatest growth potential lies in countries such as Peru, Colombia and Mexico, where economic growth prospects for 2013 and beyond are very positive, and the markets remain vastly underpenetrated.

Mining Readers' Survey for 2013

The year 2012 will not be remembered fondly by the Latin American mining industry as the post-crisis optimism in 2010 and 2011 faded in the face of operational and macroeconomic challenges that resulted in declining profits and share prices. The BNamericas Mining Survey 2013 reflects the challenging environment that miners have been experiencing, with industry players less optimistic than in recent years and more concerned about socio-political risks than before. Responses for critical factors such as metals prices, access to financing and exploration activity were notably less positive than in the 2010 and 2011 surveys, although countries such as Chile continue to receive positive evaluations despite the heightened sensation of risk.

Infrastructure Survey 2013: Results and Analysis

As the region is proving its resilience to the uncertainties affecting major economies around the globe, public budgets are expanding and private investors are increasingly turning to Latin America for new opportunities, as BNamericas' Infrastructure Survey shows. Legal frameworks are developing too, with improved public-private partnership (PPP) schemes luring investors into infrastructure developments. On a different note, project management and bureaucracy are still seen as sources of major delays. Nonetheless, with global companies increasingly set on the region, Latin American governments must make the most out of such a fertile market environment, for the sake of millions of people and firms which still lack proper public transport systems, roads, trains, ports and airports.

Shale resources in Latin America

Latin America as a whole could hold 1,900 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas resources, approximately 30% of the world's total, and it has numerous liquid-prone basins. Around 90% of the region's shale gas and an overwhelming majority of its share oil is concentrated in three countries: Argentina, Mexico and Brazil. Besides these three nations, Colombia has also been very keen on developing its shale potential. Much of the future of shale development will depend on the delicate balance between below-ground potential and above-ground risk.

Financial boutiques: A growing niche in the Andean region

Latin American companies have traditionally taken advice from the big global investment banks to guide their merger and acquisition, financial structuring and capital raising activities, among others. However, in recent years local competitors have emerged who are generally focused on certain niche areas: boutique investment banks, or financial advisory boutiques. In this report we present various cases of boutique investment banks and financial advisory firms in Colombia, Peru and Chile.

All eyes on Colombia

In much of Latin America the telecoms industry still talks about LTE as something that the general public will become aware of during 2013, not necessarily by name, but certainly in terms of campaigns advertising ultra-fast mobile broadband. However, the concept is already mainstream in Colombia, helped by intense political discussion about the forthcoming sale of additional 4G spectrum. This report reviews the positive decisions taken in recent years and evaluates the potential for Colombia to build on the progress made as a result.
