Triple Jump Attends FOROMIC in Santiago de Chile
In October, the Foromic
conference in Santiago de Chile brought in more than 700 key players of the microfinance and inclusive finance industry in the Latin American region. Triple Jump was represented by both regional teams from Lima and Mexico, including the equity team and Triple Jump Advisory Services, as well as Eelco Mol (Head of Debt) and Luca Paonessa (Head Portfolio Management) from the head office in Amsterdam.
The main theme of this year was “The Future of Financial Inclusion”, and the event was officially opened by two key note speeches from the President of Chile, Mrs. Michelle Bachelet, and the President of BID, Mr. Luis Alberto Moreno. The event was organized around a multitude of seminars and workshops on specific themes such as agricultural finance, digital finance, green microfinance and micro-insurance. Triple Jump Advisory Services organized a breakfast meeting exclusively for its clients about mergers and acquisitions in Latin America. The panel was extremely well received by the audience, with about 32 institutions and more than 70 delegates participating along with the speakers Eduardo Campos (partner of Apoyo Consulting Group, Peru), Fernando Romero (Diviso Grupo Financiero, Peru) and Luis Castillo (President, Apoyo Integral, El Salvador).
The investment team represented Triple Jump during the three days of the conference, where they met with current and prospective investees. It was also a great opportunity to meet other key players in the sector (MIVs, DFIs, public and private entities, academics) and to exchange experiences and current challenges encountered by the microfinance industry within the region.
