Interview with Javier Llanos at Norgestion on The WIL Group Latin America desk
Promoting cross-border opportunities is what our group is all about, and in Latin America – a desk which we launched in 2016 – we are already beginning to see a number of good opportunities coming through, mainly in Brazil and Uruguay.
There are some countries where you see much international activity. The most active country is Brazil, although its economy is, as usual, very fluctuating. Currently there are many international groups entering into countries like Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Colombia, and each is seeing a lot of investment activity.
Many customers – especially in the private equity arena – are beginning to move their portfolios to the Latin America market. And we cannot ignore the fact that many will need support if they are to succeed.
As a result, we are keen to promote the desk and we’ve arranged meetings with all the WIL Group members to discuss the work that we are doing on the desk, and how each of the members can be involved. With these meetings we are also looking for ways to improve the functioning of the desk. And we hope that with this ‘fine-tuning’, we will see good results soon.
We will be in touch over the coming months to arrange a Skype call or meeting where possible. In the meantime, should an opportunity arise or you’d like to discuss opportunities within the Latam market, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
