How Can Forex Brokers Succeed in Latin America?

To understand why brokers have historically had difficulty in LATAM is to focus on the region itself.

Retail brokers have consistently seen Latin America (LATAM) as a highly lucrative jurisdiction with a large potential client base. However, the region presents a wide range of challenges and barriers to entry for incoming brokers.

Unlike Europe, LATAM does not operate as a bloc, but rather with diverse regulations, demographics, and opportunities. Many brokers have arrived in the region looking to replicate their existing business, only to fail and close up shop.

Why Most Brokers Fail in LATAM

To understand why brokers have historically had difficulty in LATAM is to focus on the region itself. Many countries here operate through known contacts, personnel, or country managers. These sorts of contacts are seldom established overnight.

Additionally, even large brokers arriving from abroad have had difficulty making their mark on the LATAM market. This mainly has to do with shortcomings in marketing efforts, which often do not properly cater to the existing demographics.

“Although we speak the same language there are notorious cultural differences between countries in LATAM. To settle successfully in this region, you need to understand this is a process that will take a while to give results. We specialize in shortening that process”, explained Sebastián Rivas, co-Founder and Managing Partner at Latam Forex Solutions.

With no formal forex regulation policing the continent, each country instead relies on different means of compliance. While the LATAM market is far from mature, there is however strong potential to do business and have success.

Of course, this higher ceiling is tempered by challenges in diversity and market penetration.

Many brokers have fallen for the same types of mistakes and largely fail to approach the region as an entirely autonomous segment of the industry, which requires a more nuanced strategy.

Setting Yourself Up for Success in the Region

These challenges can seem daunting for incoming brokers, though there are a number of resources available. Relying on proven contacts in the region is the first step to success.

Whether you are looking to enter the LATAM market or are looking to improve your existing business, using the right personnel can ensure you have the inside track in doing business locally.
