Overview

Our Research & Strategy department focuses on innovative, market oriented views and analysis for institutional clients in the fixed income market.

We emphasize our local presence in the region to provide value added in markets like Venezuela and Argentina, where information is not ready accessible. Our main goal is to give investors decision-making tools based on fundamental and quantitative research.

Although we offer a wide range of strategies and investment ideas focused on High Beta LatAm markets, our coverage is mainly focused on Sovereign, Quasi-Sovereign and Corporate fixed income, and derivatives in Venezuela and Argentina.

Our research product suite includes periodical reports, quantitative reports, ad-hoc publications, and trade ideas.
