Banking on Democracy

Javier Santiso

The MIT Press

Focusing on the Latin American region, this chapter considers how the fear of uncertainty over not only the election outcome but also the policy reforms or reversals of a future government can be generated by elections, especially when the parties have not held office before. The varying factors behind the risk aversion and loss of confidence that financial markets can experience around election times are highlighted in this chapter, as well as the reasons why presidential elections and the political and ideological leanings of elected or re-elected governments affect emerging capital markets and the actions of analysts, brokers, and investors.

Keywords:   broker, election, policy reform, uncertainty, analyst, policy reversals, risk aversion, investors
