Banks in Latin America:

How are banks prepared for weak business conditions, low growth and high rates for longer?

Moody’s analysts discuss the 2023 Banking System Outlooks with a particular focus on Latin America:

  • Social discontent and political risks have mixed credit effects across systems in Latin America
  • High rates and slowdown in credit markets will increase asset risks and have mixed profitability trends in the region
  • Asset quality will be stable, in most countries, despite expected deterioration in operating conditions
  • In Brazil, the sluggish economy and high rates will continue to strain on households and banks’ risk appetite
