2021 Latin America Risk Symposium

An expert breakdown of the risks to expect in key markets such as Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Peru and more

Among the many difficult lessons of the COVID-19 crisis is that you can never be TOO prepared to deal with risks in Latin America, regardless of whether you are a risk specialist or not.

We brought together 8 top risks experts to predict the pitfalls for 2021, and now we’re offering the fruits of their expertise in a detailed presentation and 3-hour video at a cost of only $95.

Predicting 2021 Risks in Latin America

On November 12, 2020, we held the 2021 Latin America Risk Symposium. This online event brought together an array of risk analysts who specialized in different markets or sectors.

Part I: The Symposium opened with an overall analysis of regional risks affecting Latin America in general, led by John Price, Managing Director of AMI.

Part II: Then the Symposium featured a panel of experts who, country, by country, broke down 2021 risks that investors and professionals in other verticals (ranging from mining/energy to e-commerce, marketing, business intelligence and more) need to prepare for.

Country discussions centered on the following markets:

  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Central America
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Guyana
  • Mexico
  • Peru
  • Suriname

Beyond risks in specific countries, the Symposium also covered the security risks presented by organized crime’s expansion throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
