The Scorecard on the Private Equity and Venture Capital Environment in Latin America and the Caribbean is prepared annually by the Economist Intelligence Unit on behalf of the Latin American Venture Capital Association (LAVCA). The criteria used in this study were chosen in close consultation between LAVCA and the Economist Intelligence Unit research team, and reflected LAVCA's internal consultations with its members working in the industry. The real-world relevance of each of the criteria was initially evaluated through in-depth interviews conducted in late 2005. For this fourth Scorecard, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted 20 additional interviews in January and February 2009 with LAVCA members who are fund managers, service providers, or regulators based in the LAC region. These aimed primarily to obtain more in-depth information on the nature and impact of regulations in the country or countries in which they operate. In addition, EIU received replies from another six individuals to a set of written survey questions that were circulated in December 2008 through February 2009. Based on the views of these respondents and senior LAVCA staff, five of the criteria-tax treatment, minority shareholder rights, restrictions on institutional investors, capital market development and corporate governance requirements-once again this year received double weighting within the 100 point score to reflect their central prominence in investment decisions made by PE/VC funds.
