IE Capital Markets Club 2014-15

Written on January 5, 2015 by Campus Life in Professional

We at the IE Capital Markets Club were proud to be present at the IE Club Fair. We met many interesting people and discussed so many new topics to focus on in this new term. So much so that we are even working on an extension to the current topics we work with.

Centering Bloomberg we are focusing on including Investment Tools training. In collaboration with HEC and other European business schools we are working to for a cross business school club that contributes and shares financial information. These programs are still in the working stage and should be up and running in the beginning of 2015.

Also, to be more oriented to the job market we plan to organise member teach-in sessions especially directed for those interested in pursuing CFA, CAIA, or FRM. We also plan on facilitating Economy Discussion & Analysis taking advantage of the free access to both WSJ and FY Times thanks to IE. This encourages us to read articles every day and grasp the constant changes in the state of international economy. It can be further combined with case studies and presentations focused on top-down analysis, etc.

This is just the start of what looks like a great year ahead of studying, analysing and discussing relevant global issues in the world of capital markets. We are looking forward to high participation from the IE student base. We hope that our efforts dedicated to making this possible would be a good contribution to the IE student life!

Written on April 28, 2014 by Campus Life in Professional

20140407_190944IE Capital Markets Club is committed to regularly organizing interactive sessions, giving IE students the opportunity to gain insights from top-level professionals in the financial industry.

On April 07, 2014, the club organized “An Insight into Recent Tech Valuations – Dot Com 2.0?” held at MM 202, María de Molina 31. As the distinguished speaker, we had Francisco J. López Lubián, professor and former director of the area of finance at IE. With thirty years of experience in teaching, he has been associated with Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and IESE. He combined this teaching career with an intense career in business as a financial analyst at Hewlett-Packard, controller for the Sarrió Group, financial director for Sarrió Tisú and general financial director for the Isolux Group.

Professor López Lubián regularly contributes to leading newspapers, including Financial Times, and for the last five years has collaborated with Actualidad Económica journal and Expansión newspaper to publish the ranking of value creation for the shareholder.

With his wealth of experience in the financial industry, Prof. Lopez shared his opinion about the recent mind-boggling news from the tech sector. Facebook and Twitter’s IPO, the $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp, tech stock trading at astonishingly high multiples – he shed light on these indications as another possible tech bubble (DotCom 2.0).

20140407_191341One of the most intriguing aspect of the event was how coherently Prof. Lopez explained the Facebook’s recent acquisition of WhatsApp, and eventually providing his view on the blockbuster transaction. He spoke about the valuation issues that posed different challenges for Facebook, the type of assumptions used for the valuation, and more than anything else, the future outlook for the combined companies.

At the end, there was an interesting Q&A session, where Prof. Lopez answered questions from the audience regarding the transaction.
