Latin American issuers in the international debt capital markets enjoyed near-perfect conditions in 2012; total volumes hit another new record and many other records were set. The region’s credits continued to improve relatively and absolutely on those from developed markets, while issuers could access lower rates in the international market than were available domestically. There was heavy demand as international investors searched for yield outside their home and other developed markets. The result was that records tumbled. In total, $114.2 billion was raised by Latin American issuers in the international DCM markets. In February 2012, Petrobras broke the record for a single deal by an emerging markets issuer when it printed a total of $7 billion in four tranches.
