Latin America: Emerging Markets Bond Index by country 2020

The Emerging Markets Bond Index (EMBI+), commonly known as "riesgo país" in Spanish speaking countries, is a weighted capitalization market benchmark that measures the financial returns obtained each day by a selected portfolio of government bonds from emerging countries. It is measured in base points, which reflect the difference between the return rates paid by emerging countries' government bonds and those offered by U.S. Treasury bills. In July 2020, Venezuela had the highest average EMBI, amounting to more than 30,700 points. Ecuador followed second, with an index of over 2,800. In the same period, the Latin American economy with the lowest financial risk and return rates according to the EMBI was Peru, with around 172 base points.
