The Latin America Committee addresses business and regulatory issues of importance to ISDA members in Latin America. In light of recently enacted and pending legislation throughout the Latin America region, this initiative has been intensified. The focus of the Latin America Committee initiative will be on working with country regulators and potential new members to introduce them to ISDA, its documentation and other activities through meetings and conferences. The Latin America Committee operates through three subcommittees: Mexico, Brazil and Argentina/Chile.
