Business and politics are intrinsically linked in Latin America. To understand one, you must understand the other. BNamericas serves clients in over 1,000 companies, NGOs and government agencies operating in the mining, energy and infrastructure businesses throughout Latin America.

Depending on who is in power, projects in these sectors can be accelerated, delayed, turned into key government initiatives, or get buried by new political circumstances. Our clients demand insight that will alert them to these possibilities, and in light of this we have decided to create a new monthly BNamericas Intelligence Series report on Latin American political risk. 

The aim of the report is to track and put into perspective all political news that impacts the real economy (as opposed to the part of the economy concerned with buying and selling on the financial markets) in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

This report is part of a larger transformation of our political and macro coverage. Based on feedback from our clients, we are developing new ways of tracking the economic implications of political events, with the aim of helping our readers get the big picture so they might anticipate risks and structural changes in the countries in which they operate. 

Our group of reporters and analysts across Latin America, our 20-plus years of experience in the sectors we cover, and the knowledge and insight we have accumulated as professionals in the real economy provide us with the best possible skillset to take on this task.

Elections are a crucial part of this picture - between now and the end of next year, elections will be held in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico. We will provide clarity in the simplest possible manner about what to expect for the current government, and what to expect in the next, with precise details on candidates, platforms, the actual vote, the handover of power, and everything in-between.

We believe the world has entered an uncertain time in which businesses and individuals require clear, on-the-ground and continued examination of current events to understand what the various risks to economic activity are. With each report, we will publish a podcast.
