Fitch: LATAM Bank Liquidity Dashboard

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fitch Ratings has published a new LATAM Bank Liquidity Dashboard. The
report highlights key events affecting the industry as of the first half
of 2015. Although deposits still fund the majority of loans in the
region, lower than proportional deposit growth may limit future loan
growth considering the reduced availability of funds from abroad. Low
national savings rates are to blame.

The LATAM Banking market Dashboard discusses the evolving funding trends
in LATAM, which is expected to have a moderate impact on the industry’s
expected growth rate. Fitch also highlights the various factors that
have allowed the region to remain structurally strong amid increasing
loan tenor average.

The ‘LATAM Banks Liquidity Dashboard’ is available on Fitch’s websites
at ‘www.fitchratings.com
