Bloomberg Business recently reported that Argentina will be rejoining the global investment market. They will be releasing their nearly 12 billion dollars of debt onto the market. One company that will be buying up quite a bit of that debt is Highland Capital Management. Highland Capital is very excited about these new securities because securities from Argentina, at least for the past 2 years, have been providing returns of around 20 percent.

Argentina’s new president is attempting to do this in order to regain some economic stability after the previous president’s poor policies. The main surprise has been the amount of investors who are saying that they would like to reinvest in Argentina. It was expected that as soon as many were paid out, they would take the money and go to other markets. However, the returns from other emerging markets are nothing compared to what investors are able to see in Argentina.

The debt is expected to be released into the New York market in April after Judge Thomas Griesa lifts the ban that has been on the country since 2001. It was 15 years ago that the country defaulted on 95 billion dollars
