2018 to outpace strong issuance volume seen last year; appetite for Brazilian risk is surging. COPYING AND DISTRIBUTING ARE PROHIBITED WITHOUT PERMISSION OF THE PUBLISHER: CHUNT@EUROMONEY.COMCapital markets activity should increase from last year’s high volumes, according to investment bankers – and some are excitedly talking about record volumes.
Argentine president Mauricio Macri’s passed his crucial mid-term test with flying colours. He gained some seats but, more importantly, momentum in his reform programme was maintained with the population’s clear validation of his attempt to move the economy onto more orthodox footing. Reinforcing last year’s good political vibes, Chile’s presidential election continued the market-friendly theme with the election of president Sebastián Piñera in mid-December.
Senior bankers in Chile expect a triumvirate of positive factors to make 2018 a much more positive year for banking performance than this year: lower political risk, higher GDP growth and favourable competitive dynamics in the banking market. First, the clarification of Sebastián Piñera as the country’s next president, announced on Sunday, removes a long-lingering political risk that has weighed on credit demand from both corporates (investment decisions) and individuals (consumption).
Following S&P's downgrade of #Brazil Deutsche Bank expects #Braskem, #Globo and #Raizen to lose IG status and expects those credits to face some selling pressure from funds that cannot hold credits with less than two IG ratings (they would remain rated IG only by Fitch)
@btgpactual's Persio Arida is going to be the finance / economist mastermind for candidate Geraldo #Alckmin in the coming #Brazil presidential election. The pair will have a better shot at reaching the run-off if Lula is barred - big decision in appeals court 24 Jan.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
