Family remittances –Inflows moderate in September, with less benefits in the US

  • Remittances stood at US$4,403 million in September (23.3% y/y), below consensus and our expectations

  • Seasonally adjusted, they fell 1.7% m/m, affected by a difficult base effect and less unemployment benefits in the US

  • We expect remittances to keep growing. We adjust our full-year forecast range higher, to US$49.5-50.5 billion
