Now Available: Cross-Border Asset Management in Latin America 2017

Latin Asset Management, sister firm to Fund Pro Latin America, announced that it will publish a proprietary research report focused exclusively on the distribution of global investment products in Latin American Offshore, Latin American Onshore, and the US Offshore market.

The report, titled Cross-Border Asset Management in Latin America: Opportunities in Addressable Retail and Institutional Markets, was published on May 8, 2017.

Commenting on the new effort, Thomas V. Ciampi, director of Latin Asset Management, said the report aims to give global asset managers, especially active fund managers and ETF providers, a comprehensive understanding of the Latin American business opportunity both presently and over the long term.

“Over the years, our focus on the cross-border business has intensified, in tandem with Latin-investors’ need to diversify out of local markets,” Ciampi said. “This includes private pension managers (AFPs and Afores) and high-net-worth clients, and, increasingly, mass-affluent investors across the region.”

The report draws heavily on more than 50 face-to-face interviews conducted in the second half of 2016 with regional representatives of global asset managers, i.e. those based in US Offshore financial centers, as well as Latin American capitals. Additionally, Latin Asset Management was briefed by Latin fund selectors and gatekeepers in the same areas, as well as by regulators, offshore financial advisors and third-party distribution firms.

The report emphasizes the dexterity required of global firms in order to build a successful business in Latin America. For example, separate-account mandates and subadvisory agreements are commonplace in some markets, while funds-of-funds work best in others.

Relationship management is also a key focal point, as niche wholesaling and selective human-resource allocation must be employed to efficiently take advantage of emerging distribution opportunities.

Key data points included in the report are Market Sizing (investment in active funds) and 2016 Net New Inflows for the following markets:

  1. Latam Offshore, by country, fund region and fund style
  2. US Offshore, by fund region and fund style
  3. Latam Onshore (also includes investment in cross-border ETFs), by cross-border fund, by country, fund region and fund style
  4. Private Pension Funds (also includes investment in cross-border ETFs), by cross-border fund, by country, fund region and fund style
