Financial Times launches LatAm Confidential
The Financial Times has launched a premium news service about Latin America called LatAm Confidential.
Richard Lapperof LatAm Confidential writes, “Launched in September 2013, LatAm Confidential incorporates Brazil Confidential, extending our analysis of macroeconomic developments, consumer markets, resources and the progress of infrastructure projects to the whole of the Latin American region. We will cover Latin America and the Caribbean, but the focus of much of our survey work will be on the six markets that are most interesting to investors and to our subscriber base: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, as well as Brazil.
“The Brazil Confidential archive, built up since we launched the service in February 2011, is now available as part of the LatAm Confidential subscriber package.”
The service is led by Lapper, who has been Principal of Brazil Confidential since its inception. Lapper has more than 20 years experience at the FT, including a decade as the FT’s Latin America editor.
Lapper commented: “LatAm Confidential is a natural progression for the Confidential series, which now extends its expertise to over 12 emerging markets. The expanding suite of Confidentials reflects the growing demand for competitive insight and in-depth analysis on growth markets, which helps investors and corporations move early on trends and make more informed decisions.”
