The Foro Latibex is the meeting point between the main Latin American and Spanish listed companies with high exposure to the region, with Spanish and International institutional investors. Over the years, the Foro Latibex has established itself as the benchmark investment event for Latin American companies in Europe.
With this initiative, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary, BME (Bolsas y Mercados Españoles) once again aims to set a new milestone and also become a benchmark event for business and institutional relations between Spain and Iberoamerica.
The Foro Latibex also offers the opportunity to listen, exchange ideas and reflect on issues relevant to the financial and academic community. Its format is also a great opportunity to learn more about companies that are less known to the investing public.
The main activities that take place during the event are:
The conference programme alternates roundtables on financial and economic issues with sectoral debates with senior management of listed companies, fund managers, prestigious academics and leading institutions of the region.
Private meetings with the management of listed companies are available for “buy-side” institutional investors.
Latibex is the only international market which is just for Latin American securities. The market’s creation, in December 1999, was approved by the Spanish government and it is regulated by the current Spanish and European securities market regulation, as well, as supervised by the CNMV. Latibex is operated by the Spanish Exchange BME, a SIX company.
Latibex is an ideal way to channel European investment efficiently towards Iberoamerica. European investors can buy and sell shares and securities in leading iberoamerican companies through a single market, with a single operating system for trading and settlement and a single currency, the Euro. The market is based on the trading and settlement platform of the Spanish stock market, in such a way that the Latin American securities listed on Latibex are traded and settled like any other Spanish security.
Meanwhile, Latibex gives Latin American companies easy and efficient access to the European capital market. In short, it brings European investors close to one of the world’s most economically attractive regions, streamlining the operational and legal complexity and reducing risks. And this is all achieved in an environment of high information transparency.
BME has also consolidated Latibex’s innovative technical and functional organization. The Co-ordination Agreements between Latibex and Latin American stock markets make for shared and integrated management which, as well as spurring development of the market, promotes its advantages more widely.
