What's behind investors' bullish attitude towards Latin America (and its payments revolution)

EBANX has transformed its annual business event in a series of podcasts. The first episode, with exclusive interviews with Advent International, Kaszek, and Ualá, is out!

Since 2017, we have been telling stories of growth and success in Latin America through Latin America Summit, an annual business event powered by the fintech EBANX — which owns LABS.

Last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we turned a traditional face-to-face event into a 100% online experience. And in 2021, we decided to take this experience to a new level.

The commerce revolution has sped up in Latin America more than anywhere else on the globe, having as a backbone the digitization of consumption and payments.

To delve into the reasons and means by which this Latin American revolution is taking place, EBANX has turned its annual event into a series of eight podcasts.

Latin America Summit Podcast debuts today, and the first episode’s focus couldn’t be more timely: What’s behind investors’ bullish attitude towards Latin America and the revolution in payments.

Hosted by Chelsey Peña, EBANX’s Marketing Manager, the first episode brings together:

  • Brenno Raiko, partner and managing director at Advent International, one of the largest and most experienced global private equity firms;
  • Hernán Kazah, co-founder of Mercado Libre and KASZEK, one of the most prominent Latin America’s venture capital firms;
  • Ignacio Carballo, economist, professor, director of Fintech Ecosystem at the Universidad Católica de Buenos Aires and an affiliate at the consultancy firm Americas Market Intelligence (AMI), specialized in e-commerce and payments in Latin America.
  • Maia Eliscovich, Head of Ualá Bis, the B2B vertical of the Tencent and SoftBank-backed Argentinian unicorn Ualá.

Every week, a new episode of the Latin America Summit Podcast will be available on all the leading platforms (Spotify, Deezer, Google Podcasts, and Apple Podcasts), as well as on the event’s website and LABS.
