While last year was a challenging environment for investors – including those in Mexico – we think Mexico stands out from many other countries in Latin America, and as well as other emerging markets, for a number of reasons.
Mexico has developed into a high-value-added exporting powerhouse to the United States. It has passed structural reforms geared to encourage competition and attract investments at a time, when most countries are shying away from private investment and liberalisation, and it has stable fiscal and macroeconomic management.
Because of this differentiation, Mexico’s equity market has been able to outperform broader Latin America as well as emerging markets overall (as measured by MSCI indexes) in the past one, three and five-year periods.
