Venezuela & Argentina: Finding Opportunities in Opposite Stories

Few examples in EM nowadays can form such an opposing dichotomy than the stark “Yin-Yang” contrast between the prospects on Venezuela’s and Argentina’s mid-term economic performance. Yet, there’s value to be found in the former’s high-beta structure and the expectations of short-term debt payments, and the latter’s growth story that started by a government change and reaffirmed by the end of a 14-years long default saga.

BancTrust & Co will host two events to share its views on the opportunities to be caught in the myriad of yield curves offered by the both sovereigns, quasi-sovereign and corporate debtors of two of the most complex economies in the EM scope.

Carlos Fuenmayor, CEO BancTrust Securities, said: "The target audience of these two events are investment advisers and managers of private banks and family offices located in Switzerland serving customers of Venezuelan or Argentine origin, or investing in these countries. We will discuss different economic and fiscal scenarios to help understand the challenges and opportunities that both countries face and their possible impact on yields."

The events will be lead by Hernan Yellati, Head of Research & Strategy, and Guillermo Quiroga, Senior Economist. They will be held on:
