Share Article

Latin American countries will invest $450 billion in infrastructure development in 2011-2015. Alternative Latin Investor explores why the region’s governments are increasing collaboration with the private sector on major public works projects. But what could be a great opportunity for investors is undermined by a dearth of on-the-ground information and expert analysis.

“Infrastructure development in Latin America is going through a very exciting stage."

Infrastructure Investment Latin America 2011, presented by Alternative Latin Investor, is a comprehensive guide to the changes underway in one of the world’s fastest growing regions. In particular, it analyses the role of private-public-partnerships (PPP) in major infrastructure projects, and examines the ways in which you can incorporate this dynamic sector in your portfolio.

Using detailed data and testimony from experts in the region, the free report reveals what many investors don’t know about infrastructure development in the region.

-In terms of total investment, private sector participation in infrastructure projects is higher in Latin America than any developing region of the world.
-Local observers expect private-public-partnerships (PPPs) to become increasingly popular as governments find themselves unable to finance or manage all the infrastructure projects the region requires alone.
-In recent years, shares of Latin American infrastructure companies have outperformed global benchmark funds.

The report examines what role LatAm governments have, and should have, in fostering private investment. It also calculates the risk-return considerations of infrastructure investing, and identifies the new channels through which private investors can finance development projects in the region.

The free report also guides you through the hazards of investing in a historically volatile region, and explains the region-specific systems such as the fideicomiso that are essential to successful investing.

Though Latin American countries on the whole are more open to PPPs when developing infrastructure, there is considerable scope for improvement in the legal and regulatory framework. Using Peru and Colombia as case studies, the report highlights the challenges and opportunities facing the infrastructure community two of the region’s most exciting countries for private investment.

“Infrastructure development in Latin America is going through a very exciting stage. It is encouraging to see how governments and the private sector in the region are interacting with each other by exchanging information, negotiating and contracting. As part of the continuing effort of ALI to facilitate the flow of information out of Latin America, this report intends to provide analysis and insight to an increasing number of infrastructure relatedfirms and professionals interested in the developments of the industry in LatAm.” says Patricio Abal, Infrastructure Editor of Alternative Latin Investor.
