Bahlam’s Unique Approach to Finding Promising Investments in Central America

Bahlam’s approach to finding promising investments is not only strategic for the growth of the countries in Central America, but deeply rooted in sound economic theory. Leveraging the Atlas of Economic Complexity, our methodology goes beyond conventional strategies, identifying promising, safe opportunities and fostering creation of good jobs. Here’s a quick look at the key aspects of Bahlam’s approach:

  • Guided by sound development economics: Bahlam’s investment strategy incorporates the use of the Atlas of Economic Complexity, a powerful tool that maps the intricacies of global economies. By analyzing the production space of a country, Bahlam identifies opportunities that align with their long-term growth vision and sets countries on a path to prosperity. This method ensures a data-driven approach, enhancing the precision and effectiveness of investment decisions.
  • Carefully assess country dynamics: We then take desk analysis and verify it with in-country assessments of the current situation, recognizing that economic landscapes are ever-evolving and in constant flux. Being on the ground helps us be better informed about geopolitical developments, economic policies, and social trends. Bahlam tailors its investments to align with the unique needs and challenges present in the countries, and faced by firms. This dynamic approach enables our portfolio to be safe, diverse, and thrive amidst the challenges present in Central America.
  • Spotlight on Positive Deviants: Bahlam’s strategy leverages and promotes positive deviants—firms that have successfully navigated complex environments but have yet to unlock their full growth potential. These positive outliers are carefully identified and promoted, with investments aimed at providing the resources and expertise needed to propel them to new heights. This approach not only supports individual companies but contributes to the overall economic development of the regions in which they operate as they set the example for other firms.
  • Encouraging Growth in Complex Spaces: Bahlam recognizes that economic complexity is full of challenges. By targeting firms that have demonstrated resilience and innovation within this complexity, our approach actively encourages growth in spaces where others may hesitate. This calculated risk-taking fosters an environment where companies can thrive, contributing to economic expansion and technological advancement.

Bahlam’s approach to finding investing for economic growth is a testament to the power of strategic thinking, good data use, and adaptability. By incorporating economic theory, staying attuned to current country dynamics, and focusing on positive deviants, Bahlam is well-positioned to make sensible and strong investments. This method not only seeks financial returns but actively contributes to the prosperity of the region, and advances the business environment.
