The following free guide to Latin American Family Offices will help you better understand Latin American family offices. This guide will provide you with free resources to learn more about Latin America family offices.  You should also check out our 100% free book on family offices.

Introduction to Latin America

Latin America includes the following countries:  Argentina, Belize, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Venezuela.  Among these countries, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico have the strongest economies in terms of GDP PPP.  Furthermore, the growth rate of Brazil has been particularly astounding.  I have worked in Brazil and I am very familiar with the financial sector of this country and I can say from experience that the economy is growing at an incredible pace and the amount of wealth being created here is particularly impressive.  Family offices are also becoming more familiar and widely-used among the wealthy in Latin American economies.

Why Latin America

The pace of growth in Latin America has been particularly interesting to investors and businesses looking to capitalize on this high growth potential.  This has led to massive foreign investments in Latin American countries which in turn has spurred on growth and created a lot of wealth.  In the coming years, several Latin American countries are expected to grow rapidly as their economies grow stronger.  Many family offices have set up in Latin American nations in order to attract wealthy Latin American families and high-net-worth individuals.

Family Offices in Latin America

Events like the Latin America Family Office Conference and the Latin Family Office Summit illustrate the growth of family offices in this region.  Now, family offices are becoming more prevalent in Latin American countries and increasingly sought-after by high-net-worth families and individuals.  As the Latin American economies continue to grow, so will the demand for qualified family offices to serve the needs of the wealthy in these countries.

Although the Latin American family office industry is still in its infancy, the family office model is gaining traction among wealthy families.  I expect there to be a lot more family offices opening in Latin America in the near future to service the growing wealth in these countries.  I can say from my experience working in Brazil that there will be a lot more family offices in this country given the economic boon here.  As family offices continue to become more widely-recognized in Latin American countries we can expect an increase that mirrors that of Asia and Europe.
