Being comparatively well positioned macroeconomically has spurred investor interest in Mexican government debt, which is now among the most liquid and actively traded in the broader Latin American market. Given its investment grade status, its open economy, and its position as one of the largest emerging market economies, Mexican debt is also increasingly attractive for asset managers in Europe.
