The Latin American Integrated Market – MILA, is a cross-border initiative that integrates the securities markets of Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. MILA is, by number of listed companies, the largest market in Latin America and the second largest in terms of market capitalization and trading volume. MILA, which began equities trading in 2011, has been made possible through the coordinated efforts of the stock exchanges, central securities depositories and regulators of its four member countries, and is now getting ready to embrace trading in fixed-income and other financial instruments.
Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru also make up the Pacific Alliance, a free-trade zone that seeks to lower tariff and non-tariff barriers and, more generally, provide for broader economic cooperation among its members. In time, MILA aims to become a fully-integrated securities market that serves the financing, trading and post-trading needs of an expanded Pacific Alliance.
On October 15 and 16, 2015, representatives from MILA will visit Deutsche Börse and the London Stock Exchange, respectively, to discuss the opportunities that MILA holds for investors and securities infrastructure providers. Senior government officials and regulators from MILA, Germany and England will also attend to provide their views on deepening ties with Latin America.
The MILA Day 2015 – Frankfurt and London is sponsored by BNP Paribas, Goldman Sachs and the Inter-American Development Bank.
Please join us for this event and learn about the opportunities MILA holds for you.
