Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina

August 13, 2019 | Ben Mohr, CFA, Director of Fixed Income

On Sunday, August 11th, Argentina’s current president since 2015, Mauricio Macri, lost the Argentine presidential primary election by a much greater margin than expected. This development was a surprise to the markets that sent shockwaves through emerging markets asset classes. Macri’s loss seriously reduces his chances of reelection on October 27th, as this primary election was generally viewed as a referendum on Macri’s austerity measures and reforms. Macri is seeking reelection on a platform that commits to continued austerity if he were to be reelected.

In this newsletter, we explore the impact these developments have had on the markets, potential outcomes, and what to watch for going forward.
