ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Mexico's new securities legislation. Investors and potential issuers of shares are anxious to see if the political will exists to monitor and enforce the newly minted Securities Market Law, which they hope will provide new safeguards for minority investors. The bill was approved by the U.S. Senate earlier this year but, to the chagrin of many in the securities industry, the Chamber of Deputies failed to bring it to the floor flora vote before the spring session ended. Contrary to the hopes of many foreign investors, it won't be a Mexican version of the Sarbanes-Oxley Law. Once the bill becomes law, the real test will be whether there is enough institutional and juridical maturity to make it work.
