This article is part of Morningstar's "Perspectives" series, written by third-party contributors. Here, Will Landers, senior portfolio manager of the BlackRock Latin American Investment Trust, explains why he believes Latin American equities continue to offer attractively strong returns.

Latin America continues to offer one of the most attractive equity investment opportunities given the solid top-down story of the region as well as the attractive and diversified array of companies looking at the market from a bottom-up perspective.

Whilst there are interesting stories throughout the region, such as infrastructure investments in Peru, growing energy and mining investments in Colombia and Chile’s stable economy, returns in 2013 will be determined by Brazil’s ability to grow again and Mexico’s ability to move forward with its reform programme.
