Monday, March 21, 2016

Small and mid-sized banks in Central America are bracing for tighter regulations, strict capital and liquidity requirements, speakers said last week at LatinFinance’s 2nd Central America Finance and Investment Forum in Panama City.

Mario Rojas, chief executive officer at Panama’s state-owned savings bank Caja de Ahorros said "these regulations are necessary to strengthen our financial systems, but smaller banks will be under pressure".
