Alternative Latin Investor Hosts Webinar: Commercial Real Estate Investing and Lending in Latin America

Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 20, 2010 --( For investors who want to explore foreign real estate, some of the best opportunities are just south of the border in vibrant Latin America. The market appears especially ripe for picking as Latin American governments implement programs to attract foreign investment and improve their economic growth potential.

Brazil is booming and Mexico is emerging from the recession. Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Panama and others are also poised to experience growth. Taking into consideration the various trials and tribulations regarding real estate over the past two years, Alternative Latin Investor thought it prudent to hosting a round-table discussion of Latin America's fairly insulated Commercial Real Estate market along with the complementary lending market.

In order to best explore these topics they have invited some of the top experts in the field:

Maximo Pinheiro Lima Netto - Managing Director at Prosperitas - the market leader in managing real estate private equity and debt funds. Prosperitas is currently responsible for 4 domestic real estate opportunity funds, with a current real estate operation of about 1.14 billion USD of assets under management.

Flavio Mantesso - Portfolio Management Director at Eccelera - an investment fund manager focused in the office real estate sector in Brazil and partner of one of Europe’s major investment houses.
