Latin America Pension Funds' $800 billion Investment Portfolios Detailed in New Reports


The producers of The Guide to Latin America Pension Funds tminformation service announce the release of the 2013 version of this comprehensive market intelligence service on some of the largest and fastest-growing pools of investment capital.


The 2013 Guide to Latin America Pension Funds tm service illustrates that Latin America's private pension funds are dynamic marketplaces, offering attractive business opportunities for financial services providers.  Pension assets across eleven markets tracked grew at a compound annual rate of almost 13% on a dollar-weighted basis from  2007-2012,  to reach over $800 billion in assets. But like pension funds in many countries, they have had a 'home bias'  for their investment portfolios, and thus a lot of potential capacity to diversify their asset allocations overseas, opening opportunities for international managers.


The overall management of these assets represents great business opportunities. The 2013 Guide identified 16 mergers or acquisitions of pension funds during 2012 and into mid-2013, that involved almost 35% of all the assets under management, involving acquisitions by companies such as MetLife, Principal Financial, ScotiaBank, and Grupo Sura .


What is The 2013 Guide to Latin America Pension Funds tm?

The 2013 Guide to Latin America Pension Funds tmis the latest release in an  information service that focuses on the large and rapidly-growing investment portfolios of Latin America's extensive private pension funds systems.


The Guide service consists of a series of data services and reports:

The master package consists of

  • Ø  detailed  asset allocations covering over twenty asset categories of over 400 private pension funds across 11 countries. These files also contain data about the annual returns achieved by each pension fund, and about the number of affiliates and active accounts by each pension fund ,  
  • Ø  an annual publication series  “Guide Latin America Pensions Investment Context and Regulations for Major and Minor Markets
  • Ø   Directories of Key Pension Staff
  • Ø   Lists of External Portfolio Managers


How can Money Managers interested in selling their investment products in Latin America use The Guide?

The Guide serves as a footprint to navigate the region's key institutional players- the pension funds and pension administrators and how they invest their assets.. The data service allows users to easily rank pension funds by total assets under management; or by any of the 22 other asset categories in the data set.  Money Managers can use The Guide's underlying historic data to analyze the asset allocations and cross-check with the “Investment Context  and Regulations Reports" to see if a pension fund  has capacity to grow their allocations to international fixed income, international listed equities, or private equity/venture capital, to name a few categories .
