Event Overview

“You can’t let it pass if International Bank Financing is a relevant element of your job. This is the must attend event”

 

Carlos Gradim, Treasury Director, Biosev

 

 

The Latin America Syndicated Loans Conference took place on 28-29 September in Miami, welcoming over 150 arrangers, investors and borrowers from across Latin America and the US.

 

The event kicked off with an insightful macroeconomic overview from Neil Shearing, Capital Economics’ well-renowned Chief Emerging Markets Economist, with a message of cautious optimism for the room of packed delegates. Following that, the eagerly anticipated first panel summarised the ever pervasive debate of the conference: bonds vs loans. With White & Case’s Sabrena Silver moderating a distinguished line-up of banks, borrowers, and an economist, much ground was covered, as the panel contrasted loan syndication and DCM strategies, as well as the current state of international markets for bonds and loans.

Panels featuring institutional investors, corporate borrowers, and bank treasurers, completed the morning’s proceedings, with each session providing further colour on market sentiment. The investors, unveiled their key requirements for investing in the traditionally bank-dominated syndicated loan market; the bank treasurers weighed in on the value of club deals and flexible liability management; and a close-up interview with Fermaca’s Jean Perarnaud gave opinions on NAFTA, as his brain was picked by Bloomberg’s Michael Smith.

The afternoon featured streamed country workshops and panels on sustainable and responsible investment in Latin America. Roundtable workshops on infrastructure investment in Peru and Colombia contrasted with sessions featuring leading multilaterals and energy companies.

Throughout the day, several sessions made use of audience polling through the conference app, providing immediate feedback to pressing themes in the conference. The polls showed confidence in greater deal volume in Brazil; concern over political instability in Argentina; and the desire for more diverse lender involvement in loans for FIs.

The conference returned on day two with two final sessions. Firstly, a panel with two corporate borrowers assessing the lending environment for Mexican corporates; and finally, the event wrapped up with four ‘target tables’: interactive roundtable discussions that gave delegates the chance for interactive debate on some more niche issues within Latin American finance.
