Miami, June 15, 2018—Americas Market Intelligence—the premier market intelligence and strategy firm for Latin America—is offering a free guide for companies and investors to help them prepare for possible outcomes in 2018 presidential elections in Latin America.

The company initially shared the guide during a webinar broadcast on June 14, 2018. John Price—Managing Director of Americas Market Intelligence—was joined by Eduardo Gamarra, professor of political science at FIU, and Tim Padgett, Americas Editor for WLRN, in the discussion. The three experts—who have 80 years of experience in the region between them—specifically analyzed presidential elections in Colombia, Mexico and Brazil to consider their possible impact on the operations of companies and how the latter can prepare for the different outcomes.

“2018 looks to be a historic year for Latin America,” said Price. “It’s been decades since there were so many presidential elections falling in the same year, and already new presidents took office in Chile and Costa Rica, while a new one takes office in Paraguay in August. So naturally, companies are concerned about possible legislatives changes and we wanted to offer our perspective to aid in their strategic planning for Latin America for 2018 and beyond.”

The guide distills key insights from the 3 experts who participated in the webinar, all in simple presentation-style format to allow for quick navigation. “While we’re not a political consultancy, we do factor in political circumstances when needed during our market intelligence engagements so as to help companies with difficult decisions or to manage risk,” explains Price. “We’ve seen politics—and new presidents—in Latin America impact mining, healthcare, consumer packaged goods, payments and other industries, so we decided to share some of what we’ve learned.

Entitled 2018 Presidential Elections in LatAm: How Companies Can Prepare, the guide is available for free download on Americas Market Intelligence’s website.
