The time may be approaching when securitization and structured finance transactions are as prevalent in the Latin American market as mortgages are in the U.S. market. An exaggeration? Maybe, but analysts agree that global hardships may bring on an uptick in LatAm securitizations.
"There is a chance structured finance transactions in the region could pick up next year. Corporations are more exposed to the market and the government, and in order to rescue the spread, I think it's fairly likely that some of them will look toward some kind of securitized deal," said Jane Eddy, sovereign analyst at Standard and Poor's.
