If and/or when Collier County issues a Stay at Home Order, we would like you to know that we are prepared. As background, for the protection of our staff, the firm has been and continues to closely follow the guidance of government health officials. For weeks now, we have limited personal interactions between ourselves and our clients.
Because we believe we qualify as an essential business service, and as a result of the good fortune of a physical office space that allows for “smart distancing,” Naples Global Advisors is currently and will remain diligently at work for you. Our office days and hours remain the same.
We remain committed to delivering our customary high level of service and client focus. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly to discuss any specific needs.
We started the journey by flying Copa Airlines, a highly profitable Panamanian carrier principally serving South and Central America, through Panama, and into Lima, which boasts Latin America’s best airport. Lima is the energetic capital of Peru, crammed with one third of the country’s Andean/Spanish population and seemingly filled otherwise with 80’s pop music and vintage Volkswagen Beetles. For many years, Peru was known principally for the wonder of the tourist destination of Machu Picchu and for political and economic dysfunction. What we found was a surprisingly modern country nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains, rich in natural resources and hard-working yet modest people somewhat wary of their newfound prosperity.
Our enthusiasm and optimism of the investment opportunities in Peru must be somewhat tempered or at least balanced versus the risks that remain. While the trends are certainly encouraging, Peru has never before had or sustained such a prolonged period of political and economic consistency. We will be watching closely to see if the socialist-type missteps often facing governments at this stage of development can be avoided and if the country’s economy can truly emerge as an economic wonder that matches its famed tourist attractions.
