Political turmoil is on the rise around the world.  South America has not escaped this trend.  Rather, violence in Brazil echoed the events of January 6 in the U.S.  Other events around the continent are less well reported but similarly concerning.  This panel will look at how this political turmoil affects investment opportunities and investment structuring.  It will look back on past episodes of turmoil on the continent to assess how traditional political risk mitigation tools will fare in the current environment.

Registration is complimentary as a service to our International community. Details for connecting to the webinar will be sent shortly before the event.
