Continuing with its commitment to bringing leading professionals from the financial industry, IE Capital Markets Club organized its flagship event of the year last week.
On June 09, 2014, the club organized “An Insight into Post-Tapering EUR Fixed Income Credit Markets?” held at F-001, María de Molina 2, with a full-house of audience comprising of students across all Masters’ programs (MBA / MiM / MiF / MiAF) at IE.
As the key-note speaker, we invited Demetrio Salorio , Global Head of Debt Capital Markets, Société Générale Corporate and Investment Banking. He’s a distinguished IE Alumni – Executive MBA 2001 intake. Ignacio de la Torre, Academic Director, Masters in Finance, was also present to introduce Demetrio to the audience and initiate the event.
Demetrio joined Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking in Madrid in 1991. He spent 12 years in several positions within the capital markets and debt finance divisions in Madrid. In 2004, he joined SG London to globally run the Debt Capital Markets (DCM) Financial Origination effort. He was promoted to Deputy Head of DCM in 2007 and to Global Co-Head of DCM in 2008. Since 2010 he has held the position of Global Head of Debt Capital Markets.
With over 20 years’ experience in Capital Markets, Demetrio shared his view on the recent developments in the European credit market. He made thought-provoking comparisons between US & European markets – their growth potential and recent changes in investor confidence. European high yield bond market, in particular, had been an outstanding success after the financial crisis in Demetrio’s opinion, and is set for more significant market changes in short to medium-term future.
At the end, there was a networking coffee session with light snacks/refreshments, when all the participants had the opportunity to ask Demetrio various queries about his presentation as well as his personal view on the Debt market.
