'Debt Crisis in Europe - Peripherals and Market implications'
BGS in collaboration with ITC and Bloomberg organised a seminar in Athens on Tuesday 5 July 2011
at the ATHENAEUM INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL
Presenter: Andreas Coutras, PhD, Director ITC training
This was an extremely interesting seminar.
We had very good feedback from everyone and were extremely pleased with the high turnout and the level of participants.
From all the comments we had we feel that the one below by the British Ambassador Dr. David Landsman says it all:
“… I thought the seminar was excellent: a great choice! One of the best presentations I’ve heard. The questions (at least, most of them…) were excellent too!”
The presentation covered:
1. Review of the size and idiosyncrasies of the Peripheral Debt crisis
a. The case of Greece
b. The case of Ireland
2. Individual Government response to the Crisis
3. ECB response
4. European Political Response, bailouts and challenges. EFSF, ESM and the role of the IMF
Monetisation of Debt or growth?
5. Exit strategies. Market implications of Restructuring/Extension, Default, Brady Bonds
6. Consequences for Banks, Pension Funds and holders of Peripheral debt
7. A new European paradigm is emerging?
