Ernst & Young has recently published two reports about the Latin America region that they would like to share:
This is a joint study of private equity exits in Latin America by EMPEA and Ernst & Young. They teamed up to uncover how value creation is achieved in the emerging markets. Their study looked specifically at Brazil and Latin America. In the Latin American exits that they studied, PE firms are focused on growth and hands-on partnerships with entrepreneurs to transform companies into market leaders, and this approach is yielding strong results.
Download this whitepaper to see what their key findings were on exits, growth-driven performance, buying well (proprietary deals), owning well (entrepreneurial approaches to driving value) and realizing value.
In a recent survey of LPs, by EMPEA, Brazil is the second most desirable market for PE investment over the next 12 months. It was surpassed by the other increasingly attractive markets of the Latin American region, that have qualities similar to those found in Brazil – stable political situations, growing middle class and regulatory regimes. Increasing opportunities are present across the region and will lead to rising investment in countries like Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Chile. In a recent report by LAVCA, Chile topped the list of places accommodative to PE investment.
