Entrevista de IFLR 1000 a nuestro nuevo socio Dr. Pablo Cueto / IFLR 1000 interview our new partner

April 2016


Arbe Abogados adds PPP specialist
 
Arbe Abogados, based in Lima, has added a new PPP, contracts and regulatory partner to its practice. Pablo Cueto Saco joins the firm from Laub & Quijandria.
 
Cueto's practice is focused on public contracting and concessions of public infrastructure, and for the past five years he has focused on advising investors in the energy sector. He expressed that Arbe’s financial and corporate offerings aligned with his goals for expanding his own practice.
 
“A year ago I analysed deeply the situation of infrastructure in Peru, and I decided I needed to expand my practice to a wider spectrum of sectors,” he explained.
 
“Peru is compelled to invest as much as it can in all kind of infrastructure within the next year. The question now is how to attract investors and finance the infrastructure. The Peruvian government is the main promotor of public infrastructure, by contracting and financing it directly and by celebrating public private associations,” he said.
 
Right now, Peru is in the midst of a presidential election. Since no candidate received the 50% of votes required to outright win the election, the two leading candidates Keiko Fujimori (who came in first) and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (in second) are facing a runoff on June 5. The candidates have both expressed plans to invest in infrastructure if elected.
 
“Both [PPP and direct financings] are required and for this reason I would say the challenge for the next government is to clearly define priorities in terms of projects and efficiently carry out the actions needed to execute them, without political distractions,” Cueto said.

Summary of the Peruvian capital markets regulations.

March 2013


 

Which laws, regulations and administrative rulings govern the offering and trading of securities and how are they proposed, adopted and amended?

The Securities Market Law – as amended- , approved by Legislative Decree Nº 861 (“Securities Law”), governs the public offering and trading of securities.
Legislatives decrees are enacted by Peruvian executive based on a leave granted by congress, which is governmental authority in charge of enacting laws in accordance with the Peruvian constitution. In addition, there are implementing regulations to the Securities Law enacted by the Superintendency of Securities Markets (Superintendencia de Mercado de Valores -SMV) that is the governmental regulatory and supervisory entity of the securities market. The implementing regulations are adopted by the board of the SMV. Furthermore, the Lima Stock Exchange also provides some regulations in terms of securities trading. Considering that the Lima Stock Exchange is the sole stock exchange house in Peru, its internal regulation form part of the regulations and administrative rulings that govern the offering and trading of securities.

Usually, the enacting, adopting and/or amendment of securities market regulations are proposed by the executive to the congress, based on studies and research carried out by the SMV¸ the proposal made by the private sectors (e.g. bankers association, stock exchange and other private associations promoting the capital markets –such as Procapitales or entrepreneurial associations such as Confiep, Sociedad Nacional de Industrias). Although, the main objective of the executive and the SMV should be to provide rules for the promotion of the capital markets, they have mainly focused on proposing and enacting regulations to protect the market and therefor to restrict and punish unlawful conducts– even if they are in the scope of the law- that could prejudice the confidence of the investors in the market.
