PDVSA: A need for change

Even according to PDVSA's own statistics, the oil company is producing a lower volume than in 1999, when former president Hugo Chávez began his first term. The company is overworked - it contributes nearly 60% of tax revenue and is the enforcement arm of the so-called 'oil diplomacy' that Venezuela uses to build political alliances - and this has resulted in a negative cash flow that prevents it from increasing production levels.

Pensions in Brazil: Changing times

The coverage levels of the Brazilian private complementary pension system have increased in recent years with the growth of the economy and the rise of millions of people to the middle class. This momentum will further accelerate with the newly established complementary pension fund for civil servants (Funpresp-Exe), the administrator of the pension plans for employees of the federal public sector. But falling interest rates impose a new challenge for pension institutions: maintaining the high levels of profitability of recent years. This new situation is driving an increase in investments in structured funds at the expense of fixed income investment in the portfolios of pension institutions

Mexican market ready to finance boom in infrastructure and energy projects

Investors seem to be betting that 2013 will be the year that Mexico cuts loose from other emerging markets. This will require significant investment in infrastructure. Such an investment could reach US$161 billion over the next six years in various areas. In recent years, the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV) has designed instruments to enable private pension funds, known as Afores, and other investors to finance infrastructure and real estate projects. Due to regulatory changes under Basel III that could put pressure on banks' balance sheets, some analysts believe that the markets will take on a more prominent role in financing infrastructure. In addition, the BMV is preparing instruments that better suit the needs of infrastructure projects. Therefore, conditions are ripe for the market to help set off an infrastructure and energy boom in Mexico.

Encouraging Private Investment in Latin America's Transmission System

Latin America's transmission sector has never been so attractive in theory, thanks to the region's booming economy and surging power consumption levels. However, while private investment in other stages of the energy supply chain is reaching new heights, the transmission sector remains dominated by state-owned firms and publicly managed projects. If a recent surge in blackouts is anything to go by, existing regulations and market conditions aren't working, and new participants are needed to ensure that grids can sustain rapid demand growth. Governments must look to reform regulations and amend tariff arrangements to make the sector more appealing to private investment.
