Description of video from Privcap’s website:
Private equity is increasingly being seen as an “accelerator of institutionalization” and avenue for wealth creation among entrepreneurs in Latin America. This and other observations are shared in an expert conversation featuring Philip Bass, Global Private Equity Markets Leader of Ernst & Young, Arturo Saval, Co-Chairman and Senior Managing Partner of Nexxus Capital and Scott Voss, Managing Director at HarbourVest Partners.

While many owners of Latin American businesses are “very good salesmen,” according to Mexico City-based Saval, many of their companies lack enough organization, rigor and transparency to make them “market ready” for an IPO of other similarly transformative transaction. Topics discussed include how private equity firms work hand in hand with entrepreneurs to create value, the sometimes-challenging family business dynamics that private equity firms must deal with, the importance of alignment of interest and shared vision, and why the experts remain bullish on the future of Latin America.
