Capital Market Funding Strategies

Partner Oscar Stephens spoke on the panel "Capital Market Funding Strategies" at the 2nd Central America Finance & Investment Forum held in Panama City on March 10-11, 2016.

Many of the region's banks have embraced the capital markets by issuing bonds internationally. These deals are changing the paradigm for finance and investment in the region by enticing family-owned business, as well as large regional conglomerates, out of the bank market. This panel will identify how borrowers can most efficiently tap capital markets, taking into account recent deals, international trends, the local investor base and global investor demand for Central American credits.

  • How strong will international capital markets remain in the year ahead as a funding source for Central America's banks, companies and sovereigns?
  • How can multilaterals help facilitate access to the markets?
  • What is the role of the local investor base?
  • What challenges do the region’s borrowers face when they consider capital markets financing?
