Abstract

Latinoamerica viene experimentando un periodo amplio de crecimiento. Para que esta tendencia logre expandirse en los proximos años, se requiere cerrar brechas claves que puedan limitar la productividad total de los factores y asi evitar cuellos de botella. Una de esas brechas es la de infraestructuras. Una fuente de financiamiento de estos proyectos puede provenir de un uso mas intensivo de los importantes recursos acumulados por los fondos de pensiones privados. Estos ya han venido participando de diferentes maneras en el financiamiento de este tipo de proyectos a traves de diferentes vehículos financieros. Incorporar mayor dinamismo a este tipo de financiamiento requiere realizar cambios sustanciales en los procesos de analisis socioeconomico del costo-beneficio; licitaciones transparentes, efectivas y eficientes; menor burocracia; legislaciones y procesos de regulacion que aseguren una adecuada gestion de los riesgos del proyecto en todas sus etapas; y, una regulacion que se adapte al regimen de inversion de los fondos de pensiones, que finalmente cumple un estricto rol fiduciario a favor de los ahorros de los afiliados y futuros perceptores de pension durante la vejez. Solo asi podria conseguirse un circulo virtuoso entre inversion en infraestructura de los fondos de pensiones y crecimiento economico, lo que redundaria en mayores beneficios para el pais.
