Credicorp Capital AM will be fully integrated into East Capital’s investment process, working directly with team members focusing on Latin America, and providing advisory support on the current macroeconomic and political environment, as well as detailed and timely analysis of target investment and divestment opportunities.  

The partnership reflects the shared investment philosophies of East Capital and Credicorp Capital AM, combining extensive financial analysis with a local approach and frequent company meetings, and recognizing the value of incorporating ESG standards into the investment process, which favours companies with long-term, sustainable growth perspectives and responsible owners.

“This cooperation with Credicorp will provide East Capital with deeper insight into markets in Latin America. We believe the investment style of East Capital and Credicorp are very compatible, reflecting the value of a long-term focus and ESG integration. We expect their input and market knowledge to significantly enhance our investment capabilities in Latin America.” 

James Loveday, Regional Head of Credicorp Capital Asset Management adds:  

“We are deeply excited about this partnership with East Capital, which demonstrates the importance of our unique investment approach in the region. We are confident that the integration of sustainability factors into our investment process and the focus on in-depth research and a long-term approach will yield positive results for both firms and our clients.”
