I'm an equities analyst who's lived in LatAm for over a decade. Otto Rock is a nom de plume, but on the other hand it's not that difficult to work out who I am. However (and quite rightly) I highly doubt if you care who I really am, so there you go. If you're not an unhinged loop or a lawyer and really want to know, send me a mail and I'll tell you. Ain't no big deal either way. My articles contain my own personal opinions and have nothing to do with anybody else. It's not investment advice, either.
