BNamericas Financial Services survey 2013: Results and analysis

In our 2013 financial services survey, we give the floor to executives and experts to let them share their outlook for Latin America's financial services sector for this year. Their consensus is that in 2013 the region's banking sector will continue on the path to growth. Respondents expect financial institutions to see a continuation of both the expansion in credit portfolios and the rise in return on equity (ROE). Nevertheless, there are also risks ahead, such as the possibility of local impact from global regulatory changes and high levels of consumer debt in some countries.

Opportunities for financial sector
As far as opportunities go for the financial sector in 2013, the consensus focuses on economic growth. With the exception of Argentina, the region’s larger economies exhibit marked optimism regarding GDP growth.

Brazilian banks to benefit
The Brazilian banking sector’s efforts to increase its rate of expansion this year will benefit from tailwinds. All the respondents in Brazil were optimistic regarding the country’s economic growth in 2013. In a context in which millions of people have been able to join the middle class in recent years, that economic growth promises to continue to expand credit.

Mexicans expecting solid 2013
Mexican bankers expect a solid 2013 for the financial sector. Despite the uncertainty regarding the fiscal agreement in the United States (the survey was concluded towards the end of 2012), nearly 90% of respondents rated this year’s economic outlook as positive or very positive in the countries where they operate.

Modest growth expected for Chilean banks
The Chilean financial sector will continue to grow in 2013, but at a rate limited by the maturity it has already achieved. With the deceleration in GDP growth expected for 2013, corporate and consumer lending are expected to expand slower than mortgage lending.
