Market Trends 2019/20: Latin America
By Michael L. Fitzgerald & By Joy K. Gallup
This market trends article examines the 2019–2020 trends for the largest Latin American economies, including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and Colombia and provides a market outlook for the remainder of 2020, subject to the obvious COVID-19 related caveats. From the vantage point of the second quarter of 2020, with the COVID-19 pandemic still curtailing normal economic activities, it is difficult to see what the trends from the past year or years can tell us about the future of the capital markets in Latin America. Nonetheless, there are several major factors that consistently influence the markets, and though we may be looking at the future through a different lens, those factors are still likely to play an important role in shaping the future trends as well.
