Description: The conference, hosted jointly by CFA Institute and CFA Society Brazil, is a must-attend event for investors in Latin America. Featuring globally acclaimed speakers, the conference will address a range of diverse topics and perspectives to shape investment strategies in Latin American markets.
The 2018 Latin America Investment Conference is a practitioner-oriented educational conference focused on Latin American economies and capital markets, as well as global issues relevant to investors worldwide. In 2018, the conference will be held in Rio de Janeiro and will gather leading global investors and researchers from Brazil and the region to discuss macroeconomic trends, innovations affecting financial services, and investment opportunities in the region. The conference is aimed at analysts, portfolio managers, and other senior investment professionals working in or interested in Latin American markets.
The following topics will be covered:
how politics, government reforms, and policies in Brazil and the region will affect the investing climate
what demographic trends tell us about Latin America investment opportunities and which sectors and companies will benefit
how global and regional asset, risk, and strategy allocation can help achieve investment objectives for a wide range of clients—from high-net-worth individuals to pensions and sovereign wealth funds
where leading equity investors are finding the best values and growth opportunities regionally and globally
which fixed-income securities and currencies are most attractive and which global risk factors, including rising interest rates in the United States, will affect returns going forward
what alternative investment strategies are most effective and what the prospects are for real estate, infrastructure, energy, and agriculture.
