For a fourth year in a row BBVA held its annual Seminar for Public Investors and Issuers which, on this occasion, took place in Seville from 23-27 of March 2015.
The event registered a significant increase in the number and diversity of assistants with respect to previous editions. In total more than 70 clients representing over 50 different public institutions attended from four different continents: America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
The main seminar themes were the fixed income, equity and FX markets of Europe, Latin America, Turkey and Asia. This was possible in large part thanks to the outstanding participation, as speakers and panelists, of 24 public entities, as well as the participation of BBVA Corporate & Investment Banking product specialists from Global Markets and Global Transaction Banking, as well as BBVA Asset Management and bankers from the Global Client Coverage unit.
This event has enabled BBVA to enhance its coverage of this important client segment comprising reserve managers from central banks, sovereign wealth funds and public pension funds, and some of the main sovereign, supranational, and agency issuers.
Our clients attached great importance to the BBVA-sponsored one-on-one meetings between public investors and issuers. Overall more than 40 one-on-one meetings and 10 group meetings took place in Seville.
Some of the main speakers from the public investor world included representatives from the central banks of Colombia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Turkey and Uruguay. Among the issuers, some of the key speakers included the treasuries of Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Turkey, and major supras and agencies such as the EIB, ESM, ICO, IFC, KfW and Korea Eximbank.
This year's seminar was able to build on the success of the previous editions held in Hong Kong (2012), Madrid (2013) and Barcelona (2014), which covered the Asian, Latin American and European markets respectively.
