Miami, October 29, 2020—Americas Market Intelligence (AMI) will bring together 10 top risk analysts to highlight 2021 challenges, pitfalls and opportunities in Latin America for investors at a unique event to be streamed live on November 12 at 12:30 PM EST.

“Despite the havoc wrought by the COVID-19 crisis in the region, there are still some key factors that make Latin America attractive to investors, such as rising mineral prices, energy reform, the privatization of state infrastructure and spiking e-commerce,” says John Price, Managing Director of AMI. “However, investors may not know about all the risks due to shifting political landscapes, loss of fiscal revenues, crime rising due to massive unemployment and more. That is why we have created this event.”

The 2021 LatAm Risk Symposium will be a 3-hour event to deliver the depth needed to cover potential risks thoroughly. However, the Symposium will follow a strict schedule of coverage to allow viewers to tune into their specific areas of interest and not have to watch the entire event if their schedules do not permit it. In addition, AMI will send all viewers the presentation slides and video of the Symposium to allow them to review it at their convenience. The 2021 LatAm Risk Symposium’s agenda is below, showing times and topics, mostly driven by examining risks in specific countries while also including a special section on crime and security.
