Securitization Markets in Brazil: Recent Developments and Future Prospects

Recent developments in Brazil have contributed to a remarkable growth of securitization activity in the country. Lasting macroeconomic stability, a solid regulatory framework and stronger capital markets have turned the country into the leading securitization market in Latin America. There is a growing diversification in the assets being securitized, from trade receivables and mortgage loans to future flows and judicial awards. Please join Ibrademp for a timely event on this important topic.
