Themes driving African credit quality

  • Growth: Economic growth concerns are always relevant for the region, from Mexico to Argentina
  • Financial Stability: Monetary policy in the region has taken diverging tracks in the past two years; e.g., Brazil´s rates are at historical lows whilst Mexico´s rates are close to highs, and Argentina is struggling to bring down inflation rates – Implications for the banking systems, cost of funding, inflation prospects?  
  • Political Risk: Elections taking place in Mexico, Colombia, Brazil; unexpected resignation by the president in Peru. Election outcomes are known in Chile and Paraguay. What are the prospects for growth, structural reforms, etc.? 
  • Technology and Innovation: Probably not a theme affecting national economies, but are there any major industrial sectors affected; e.g: agribusiness and manufacturing?
  • Climate Change and Sustainability: In combination with other themes, such as growth or technology? Or, carbon emission legislation’s impact on the power sector; incentives for renewables?
  • Demographics: Chile is aging rapidly. Implications on pension savings? Prospects for reforms of government-sponsored pensions? Is demographics the real challenge, or the structure of pension systems?
