The article reports on exporting mid-market banking into LatAm SA. Arkansas-based Stephens Inc. launched a new unit, Stephens Cori Capital Advisors, to focus on middle-market opportunities in Latin America and at the same time tap into the ever-burgeoning number of Hispanic-owned middle-market companies in the U.S. At the same time, improved economies, low inflation and interest rates and more efficient and transparent capital markets have made the conditions for investing in LatAm middle-market companies far more appealing than just a few years ago.
