Private Equity

Mexico City - Apr 08, 2014

Mexico City 12052013


Private equity in Latin America has been gaining momentum and is now more popular than ever. Mexico’s economy is large and growing, but private equity’s penetration has been modest compared with other notable Latin American countries. The benefits to local companies are clear: PE support has helped companies produce strong growth in both revenue and new jobs. According to experts, the long-term outlook for Mexico is very attractive and the supply of quality private equity opportunities is available for experienced teams.

What does the macroeconomic outlook envision for Mexico? How will regional and global private equity firms be able to take advantage of the potential in Mexico? Which key industries offer the greatest opportunities for private equity investors in Mexico? How do regulations and policies need to change to allow PE to thrive in Mexico?

Chicago Booth invites you to join us in Mexico City for a discussion with Booth alumni and PE professionals who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment. Hear their take on the future of private equity in Latin America.
