Sunnier economic prospects promise much for LatAm dealmakers

Latin America was heavily affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Lockdowns imposed across the region directly impacted growth, with the region’s economy contracting by 9.4% in 2020, compared to 3% globally. Despite the initial devastation of the pandemic, there are signs that the economic outlook is beginning to improve: the International Monetary Fund is predicting that the region’s economy will grow by 4.1% in 2021.

Dealmaking confidence is increasing as this outlook brightens. A total of 376 deals worth US$66.9bn in aggregate were announced in H1 2021, representing an increase of 133 deals year-on-year. Meanwhile, with six months left to go this year, that total deal value already exceeds 2020’s annual sum.
