Securitizations Grow in Costa Rica

The demand increases while $200 million in emissions are expected over the next 12 months.

Thursday, April 30, 2009

The prices of these instruments have risen in recent weeks, increasing their demand due to the low interest rates for investing in dollars.

Moreover, there are several of these instruments planned for this year, among them one for the customs office in Peñas Blancas and others for the University of Costa Rica, the Costa Rican Institute of Pacific Ports and the Garabito Thermal Project.

The manager of the National Stock Exchange of Costa Rica, Jose Rafael Brenes, told "We hope that securitizations of at least $200 million are authorized in the next 12 months."
