OMFIF’s Sovereign Debt Institute returns with its annual outlook for the Latin American sovereign bond market, bringing together sovereign debt management heads with senior portfolio managers in the region to discuss funding conditions for the year ahead.
There is a bullish mood about Latin American issuance after activity picked up in 2023 and there were signs that the Federal Reserve’s rate hiking cycle has peaked. Mexico’s record-breaking transaction at the start of January reinforced this sentiment with a $7.5bn deal. Will activity and funding conditions remain buoyant throughout the year? What impact will the US and domestic elections in the region have on the market?
As well as macro themes, we will discuss what the breakdown of issuance in 2024 will look like for the region in terms of produce type, local versus international issuance and environmental, social and governance debt. We will hear from debt management office heads as well as senior portfolio managers who will give their views on the market and what they would like to see from Latin American sovereigns.
This on-the-record, virtual event will be broadcast globally to the OMFIF network, which includes policy-makers, issuers, investors and central bankers. The virtual audience will have an opportunity to submit questions to the moderator and all sessions will be recorded and made available on demand shortly after the event has finished.
