On June 20th, 2019 in the city of New York, the Mexican Association of PE & VC Funds AMEXAP held with great success the VII edition of Mexico PE Day. under the motto Mexico: Investing in a New Business Environment. The AMEXCAP is very pleased with the results achieved for this year's edition, which included over 200 attendees (36.07% Advisors and Financial Services Firms, 26.48% Private Equity Firms, 14.61 % Institutional Investors & LPs, 3.65% Family Offices, 19.18% Government Officials & Local or International Organizations).
Besides, in terms of gender distribution, we had 21% of female assistants. Regarding international presence, we had attendees from both the US and Canada, thus we also promote the relation between North American key players.
The event served as a forum to present an overview of the national and international economic panorama, as well as the opportunities in different sectors for the Private Equity industry in Mexico; likewise, the former negotiator of NAFTA (now USMCA), Kenneth Smith, gave us the perspective of the bilateral relation between Mexico and the US.
We were also very proud to present the PE Overview "Private Equity in Mexico: Investing in a New Business Environment", an unprecedented study that analyzes the Private Equity industry and its regulations, including statistics about fundraising, investments and exits divided by strategies i.e. Venture Capital, Growth & LBO, Real Estate, Infrastructure & Energy. It includes an analysis of these strategies by the president of each committee of the Board of AMEXCAP. Finally, it contains an outlook of the Latin America Alternatives Industry. This study was elaborated by AMEXCAP, Preqin and EY and it is available in our web page.
The great importance of the event to build trust and attract investments to Mexico was clear with the presence of high-level Mexican government representatives such as Arturo Herrera, Deputy Minister of Finance of the SHCP, Rogelio Jiménez Pons, General Director of FONATUR and Jorge Mendoza, General Director of BANOBRAS.
We want to especially thank our first level speakers, who shared their specialized knowledge and perspectives of different industry strategies, as well as our sponsors.
