What do you think are good positions for someone who speaks English, Spanish, and Portuguese, has a master's in finance, and went to an undergrad target would be?
-Investments in emerging markets either in the U.S. or abroad
-NYC/Miami based finance focused on LatAm
-Consulting based on LatAm (does anyone know good companies?)
-Geopolitical risk consulting?
-Fortune 500 with LatAm presence
What do you think?
Hi guys, I was hoping to get some advice. This is my first post, but I've been reading this website a lot. I'm a New York born and raised guy that went to a liberal arts college and played top 20 division I lacrosse (earning a 3.4 GPA). My international family background made me become fascinated by Latam. After graduation, I moved to Chile (without fully speaking Spanish and knowing absolutely no one) to start a position as intern at a boutique M&A focused investment bank based here in Chile.
Disclosure: this is my very first post so please bare with me, should I make any mistakes in not following any guidelines.
I am a US citizen interested in breaking into MBB in Brasil/ Latin America. I am speak little Portuguese and I will be in Brasil working on non-consulting related (engineering) work next year.
What is the overall perception of investment banking Latin America coverage groups at bulge brackets (JPM/BAML/Citi/CS)? Which are the strongest? How are the exit opps into PE/VC or HF?
I am from the region and am thinking of interning at one of these.
I'm not an expert on Latin America but was there last year and was curious on what the community thinks of venture capital industry, especially in early stage tech investing in LATAM... thoughts on particularly emerging markets such as Mexico, Brazil, Chile and the ones that are just growing such as Colombia, Argentina and Peru? Will it ever get big to matter? Spanish is the 2nd most common language after all.
In case you missed our January 18th webinar entitled Recruiting and Working for McKinsey in LatAm, have no fear. The full recording of the webinar can be found below (free for only 24 hours when it goes into our video library). Do you want to a 1 on 1 mentoring session with Alberto? Click below:

Hello and greetings,
I am a 2012 December international business graduate from Texas Tech University. I recently moved up to the NYC area about a year ago. I have spent most of my time working full-time (6-7) days a week at an upscale restaurant, and now a high-end jewelry store in the city. I have made some connections via alumni or friends that work in BB banks and I they have been referring me to positions within their company, unfortunately I have had no luck and have not landed a finance interview.
My fiance has been offered the "job of her life" in Chile and given that I'm a bit tired of gloomy London I'm seriously considering moving there with her.
Of course, I will need to find a job. Ideally in buy side/sell side research –since I'm an equity analyst at a BB here in London- but beggars can't be choosers so happy to consider other finance jobs. My native language is Spanish so I should be ok on that front.
Does anyone know any good site for financial jobs in Chile (or even Latam in general)? Also if anyone has a view on the job market down there it would be very helpful.
