Ignacio de la Torre y Daniel Lacalle en “El Confidencial” tras su debate en el IE

Written on September 29, 2014 by Finance Masters Team in News

CHARLA EN EL IE ENTRE LACALLE Y DE LA TORRE

“Bendita sea la deflación: ¿quién no quiere que bajen los precios?”

  • Ignacio de la Torre (i) y Daniel Lacalle (d), en el Instituto de Empresa
La economía ha entrado en una nueva fase. Hasta aquí el acuerdo. Los matices comienzan a partir de una constatación. En palabras del economista Daniel Lacalle, España se caracteriza por que su economía siempre es “ultracíclica”.Para lo bueno y para lo malo. Cuando sube y cuando baja. Cuando crece y cuando deja de hacerlo. Y lo achaca a una razón: el peso de la economía sumergida es tan potente que cuando la economía se recupera lo hace de forma vigorosa al calor de la actividad situada al margen del sistema fiscal. El economista Ignacio de la Torre no duda del importante peso de la economía sumergida para determinar el sesgo del crecimiento. Pero introduce un matiz. Existen causas endógenas que explican la recuperación. Y en particular, los indicadores que miden las expectativas de los agentes económicos, como el PMI. Aunque también el aumento del flujo de crédito está detrás del auge del consumo. Lo más positivo, con todo, es que “por primera vez desde el siglo XVI” España ha recuperado el terreno perdido sin devaluar. “El euro lo ha impedido”, proclama satisfecho. Lacalle y De la Torre –ambos columnistas de El Confidencial– polemizaron en elInstituto de Empresa sobre las razones que explican la recuperación. Y lo que es más importante, sobre lo que sucederá en los próximos años a partir de una evidencia: la economía ha vuelto a crecer por encima de la media de la Unión Europea. ¿A costa de de qué? ¿De la destrucción de parte de su tejido productivo? Daniel Lacalle tiene una respuesta. Históricamente, la industria se ha especializado en la maquila de bienes, pero no ha buscado su especialización en la generación de valor añadido. “No se puede competir con China”, asegura. Y ese modelo, en su opinión, es “insostenible”.  Según sus propias palabras, “siempre habrá un país que producirá más barato”. Señala otro problema: la“autocomplacencia”, un mal que históricamente recorre España. Hasta el punto de que, cuando la economía comienza a tirar, los Gobiernos bajan la guardia sin que se vaya hacia un modelo industrial de “alto valor añadido”. De hecho, según Lacalle, “sólo se ha aumentado la productividad aumentando el paro”. El ministro de Economía, Luis de Guindos. (EFE)El ministro de Economía, Luis de Guindos. (EFE)Para De la Torre, se ha producido un punto de inflexión en la industria, entre otras cosas por la contención de los costes laborales. Hasta el punto de que “España se convertirá en la fábrica de Europa”. Algo parecido a la célebre ‘destrucción creativa’ del economista Schumpeter, para quien tenía que morir lo viejo para que emergiera lo nuevo. ¿Cuál es el problema?, señala Lacalle. El hecho de que los costes energéticossiguen siendo en España extraordinariamente elevados –“desorbitantes”, incluso–, y eso lastra la recuperación. De la Torre coincide en un diagnóstico: “Lo importante es la productividad”. El problema, según el director académico de los másteres en Finanzas del IE es que el tejido industrial español se caracteriza por la existencia de muchas pequeñas empresas, pero pocas de tamaño mediano, al contrario de lo que sucede en Alemania. Salarios y productividad ¿Hay que subir los salarios para estimular la economía? La respuesta de Lacalle es clara: “Habrá que hacerlo cuando la economía esté creciendo a velocidad de crucero”, y en todo caso, como sostiene De la Torre, en coherencia con los avances en productividad. Daniel Lacalle, en este sentido, echa mano de una estadística muy representativa. En España, apenas el 10% de los licenciados sale de la universidad para crear puestos de trabajo, mientras que en otros países europeos ese porcentaje se sitúa entre el 30% y el 45%. ¿Hay riesgo de deflación en la economía española? Para el gesto de fondos de inversión, en “absoluto”. Es más, según sus propias palabras, “Bienvenida ybendita sea la deflación”. Su escepticismo sobre la caída general de precios le lleva a plantear una provocadora pregunta: ¿algún consumidor ha protestado alguna vez porque baje el precio de la fruta? O dicho de otra manera, sostiene Lacalle, “el Estado es quien protesta porque bajan los precios, no losciudadanos”. Básicamente, porque los poderes públicos confían en que la inflación ayude a reducir su endeudamiento. El presidente del Banco Central Europeo, Mario Draghi. (Reuters)El presidente del Banco Central Europeo, Mario Draghi. (Reuters)Ignacio de la Torre –socio y responsable del área de Mercados de Capital deArcano– no ve un riego cierto de deflación. Más bien, aclara, la UE se mueve “en un contexto de desinflación”, que no es lo mismo. Es decir, en línea con la jerga que le gusta utilizar al presidente del BCE, Mario Draghi, cuando se refiere al riesgo de una caída general de los precios. ¿Y cómo se saldrá definitivamente de la crisis en un país con casi el 25% de desempleo? De la Torre y Lacalle coinciden en que sólo “con una limpieza de balances y con ahorro”. El problema, según el segundo, es que el Estado de bienestar ha crecido hasta ser “desproporcionado”. En su opinión, “los populismos y los nacionalismos son hijos de los privilegios del Estado de bienestar”. La anormalidad, en todo caso, seguirá en las economías desarrolladas. Y en este sentido, Ignacio de la Torre llega a una conclusión: “No es normal que España se financie más barato que EEUU”. Y recuerda un viejo chiste que gusta decir a los banqueros centrales. “Draghi puede llevar al caballo al río a beber agua” –aumentando la liquidez–, “pero lo que no puede hacer es obligar al equino a beber”. Falta demanda solvente de crédito. Daniel Lacalle se muestra en la misma línea y acaba la charla con una sentencia: “Se están cometiendo los mismos errores que en el pasado”, y la nueva regulación bancaria lo que hace es impedir la financiación de familias y empresas. “Lo que no se puede –asegura– es sorber y soplar al mismo tiempo”, y eso es lo que se está pidiendo ahora a los bancos.

Executive Finance Interview series: GMIF student Arsalaan Siddiqi (Pakistan)

Written on September 24, 2014 by Finance Masters Team in News

Yesterday we interviewed Arsalaan Siddiqi, a current student of the IE Global Master in Finance. Arsalaan holds a BBA & MBA from the Institute of Business Administration, Karachi, Pakistan, and an MBA from George Washington University (US) and is currently working at Financial Institutions, Corporates, and Trade at NBP Saudi Arabia. Let´s listen to Arsalaan´s story! 

Arsalaan Siddiqi 
IE Finance Team: Hi Arsalaan, can you tell us briefly about yourself? So you are from Pakistan but currently living and working in Saudi Arabia, why did you move to Saudi Arabia and how is your professional life going?  

Arsalaan: I call myself a professional within the financial services sector. I have been working in banking since 11 years; my involvement in the sector has been cross-sectional and I have worked in a range of functions including Corporate Finance, Loan Structuring, Origination, Coverage, Institutional Banking. From an academic perspective, I have had most of my education in my home country Pakistan but went to the United States to complete a Masters from the George Washington University in Washington DC.

My reason for going to Saudi Arabia was to move to a larger palette within the global financial industry (especially from the standpoint of Islamic Finance, which is one of my specialities). I had been working for local Islamic institutions in Pakistan, and wanted to be part of a larger/more diverse/more global team. I consider myself fortunate to be provided the opportunity of working with the largest Islamic bank globally – Al Rajhi Bank. Although I have moved on from Al Rajhi Bank, I have enjoyed my stint in the Middle East so far; the region has actually grown on me.

IE Finance Team: Can you tell us why you chose IE´s Global Master in Finance over the different top Finance programs worldwide? What is it about the GMIF that appealed to you?

Arsalaan: I always wanted to pursue a specialist finance degree in order to hone my skills and keep abreast of the latest developments in that realm. Interestingly, I stumbled upon IE only through a friend whom I was helping study math for the GMAT. Due to my affinity (till that time) only with US based schools, I was focusing on Universities in the same jurisdiction. Carnegie Mellon, MIT came on my radar only to be rejected due to the lack of flexibility their programs provided – all wanted full-time enrollment and I did not want to pursue such programs due to family/professional reasons. IE’s program, being well ranked and in a format that suited my schedule provided the proverbial “perfect fit”.

IE Finance Team: Now that the GMIF program is coming to an end, could you tell us about your learning experience, your classmates?

Arsalaan: Must say that our current GMIF 2014 class is a competent, confident, and an extremely competitive bunch. However, as much as I was attracted by the “blended format” I wish for more face time to interact with my batch mates/teachers. The learning has been noteworthy and although I frankly believe that a bit too much has been packaged in a one year program, IE still provides you the opportunity to learn as much as possible - it all depends on your hunger!

IE Finance Team: How did you find IE´s blended methodology?

Arsalaan: The blended format is the perfect answer to the needs of a highly competitive professional desirious of a top-notch qualification, unwilling to leave his current work setting  due to work/family committments. I would ideally have one more face to face period where advanced level courses and electives were taught, but as is, this is a pretty neat program with a healthy mix of forums, face to face periods, projects, assignments et al. The workload, I must admit is quite intense, and the pressures of competing with above average candidates makes you forget about grades and focus on learning ONLY.

IE Finance Team: What is your most important take-away from the program?

Arsalaan: Difficult to answer that question; there are more than one take aways but if you restrict me to a solitary take away, I would say…..the knowledge repository which perhaps will stay with me for the rest of my life.

IE Finance Team: Which values do you think that IE’s GMIF is going to add to your personal growth and professional development?

Arsalaan: That is another tough one but the list would certainly include, “ethical responsibility”; “humaneness”; “spirit of competition”; “self belief”…not to forget the folly of a GPA as grades are the last thing on your mind due to the bell curve in a highly competitive class.

IE Finance Team: Thank you very much Arsalaan for your time for this interview and I wish you good luck with the rest of the program & your career!

The Ghana Experience at IE, by Maximilian Czymoch

Written on September 19, 2014 by Finance Masters Team in News

- Blog post written by Maximilian Czymoch (Germany), alumnus of Dual Degree Master in Management + Master in Finance 2014

Some of the key values that IE Business School promotes are diversity, entrepreneurship and social responsibility. However these values are not only stated on our website but they are lived every day in the class room and the projects that IE students take part in.

As part of my final project for the Master in Finance Class of 2014, I was able to take part in the Ghana Microfinance Consulting Project. This project is a clear demonstration of IE Business Schools commitment to both entrepreneurship and social responsibility and it allowed me and the other four students to have an incredible real life learning experience. During the project my team and I created a consulting report for a Ghanaian microfinance institution, with the aim of giving an insight into the institution to outside parties and outlining the key recommendations for the institution to improve its performance in the long run and thus become more attractive for international investors.

The team: Cristian Batistella ,Prakhar Agarwal, Artem Zyryanov, Maximilian Czymoch, Vaibhav Chhabra.Equipo

The timeline for this project is substantially longer than many of the other final projects, since it requires significant amounts of preparation before the one week long field trip to Ghana. Subsequently we had to apply for the project in January and started preparing and communicating with the microfinance institution in Ghana in February, while our field trip was scheduled for the mid of May. During this time we distributed the different parts of the project amongst ourselves according to both expertise and interest and then each of us became an expert in certain aspects of the institution, while being updated by our colleagues on others. This allowed us to form a first opinion about the key topics for investigation and to create a catalogue of questions to ask while on site in Ghana.

The field trip in my view was one of most impressive experiences I have had during my life. After a good night’s sleep on the night of our arrival in Accra, the capital of Ghana, we visited one of the rural communities that our mentor had been working with for several years already. I had not been to West Africa before, so seeing Accra and visting the rural village outside, was something completely new to me. Especially the people were impressive, who directly welcomed us into their community. Furthermore the stories, that we heard about the impact of microfinance on the real lives of people, showed us the significance of the project we were working on.

For the following three days we worked with the microfinance institution on-site at their offices in Accra, where we interviewed both senior management and operational staff. Additionally we spent one day, visiting clients of the microfinance institution to see how the loans are actually dispersed and how interest and principal are collected. It also allowed us to interview clients about the impact they felt from taking on new loans and how this had affected their families. At the end of each day we sat together to discuss and write-up our findings, while preparing for the next day. By the end of the three days we felt confident that we had collected all the required information. After the field work with our client, we travelled west towards Cape Coast, where teams of the Executive Master in Finance were working with other institutions. During those two last days we spent our time travelling around to get an insight into the rich history and natural beauty of Ghana.

In retrospect, I would recommend anyone to take part in this project since I believe its a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only apply the knowledge acquired during the Master in Finance but also to experience something completely new.

Goldman gives junior bankers 20% pay rise

 

Goldman Sachs is increasing salaries for junior bankers in the US by about 20 per cent in an increasingly frenetic war to attract and retain young graduates.

Some first-year employees will see their salaries increase to about $85,000, according to people familiar with the matter. The change does not affect bonuses, which can equal the salary. It does not affect every new recruit, and is not being rolled out internationally.

Wall Street banks, which have been trying to rein in overall remuneration costs, have come under pressure to improve salaries for their junior staff. Rivals, including Morgan Stanley, have already moved to increase base pay.

Many bankers complain that, while they may be receiving a large bonus in deferred stock, they need cash to spend on expensive Manhattan rents.

The move comes amid a broader reappraisal of pay and conditions at large banks, which are having to deal with private equity firms poaching their staff, Silicon Valley technology companies looking for talent and the death of a Bank of America intern who was working long hours.

BofA announced last month that it would hire more junior staff in an attempt to improve the work/life balance of its bankers. Several banks have attempted to limit work at weekends. Goldman has taken this approach and warned of disciplinary consequences for bankers who breach the new rules.

Last October Goldman announced the findings of a “junior banker task force” set up to improve conditions.

Its proposals included hiring more entry-level employees, called analysts, and providing additional opportunities for these analysts to spend time with their managers and clients.

“The goal is for our analysts to want to be here for a career,” said David Solomon, Goldman’s co-head of investment banking. “We want them to be challenged, but also to operate at a pace where they’re going to stay here and learn important skills that are going to stick. This is a marathon, not a sprint.”

In 2012 Goldman ended two-year contracts and bonuses for analysts at its investment banking operations. The move to give these junior bankers full-time employment contracts from the start was designed as a way to prevent them from being poached by hedge funds and private equity groups.

Executive Master en Finanzas (EXMIF)

Promoción Octubre 2013

 

Estimados amigos del IE,

Queremos compartir con vosotros la felicidad de uno de nuestros alumnos del Executive Master en Finanzas de la convocatoria de Octubre de 2013.

La idea de realizar un Master en Finanzas en el IE es conseguir una formación 360 en las áreas más modernas y de mayor potencial dentro del sector a la vez que potenciamos las cualidades y habilidades de nuestros alumnos. Todo ello con el objetivo último de que consigan dar un salto cualitativo y cuantitativo en su carrera profesional lo antes posible.

Compartimos la historia de Miguel Ángel Martinez Blázquez, que lo ha conseguido a las pocas semanas de acabar el master.

Enhorabuena Miguel Ángel, son estos hitos los que nos dan fuerza para seguir luchando y mejorando día a día! Desde Finanzas en el IE te lo agradecemos y te damos gracias por contárnoslo.

“A lo largo de mis diez años de carrera profesional siempre había desempeñado funciones relacionadas con la auditoría/consultoría, consolidación y reporting financiero en multinacionales. En las grandes empresas, los profesionales tienden a encasillarse en un área o función concreta, como fue mi caso. Para aspirar a ocupar el puesto de Director Financiero en una empresa de grandes dimensiones es necesario además de dominar la rama contable, hacerlo también con la rama financiera, el control de gestión y desarrollar habilidades directivas”, asegura Miguel Ángel.

Además de suponer un salto cualitativo en mi currículum, y de ponerme en contacto con profesionales muy cualificados del sector, el Executive Master in Finance me ha proporcionado las habilidades y conocimientos necesarios para poder dar un giro en mi carrera profesional tras haber sido seleccionado, días después de acabar el programa, para ejercer el cargo de Controller en Financial Planning and Analysis en una cotizada del IBEX 35” comenta miguel Ángel.

En breve seguiremos con más historias de éxito de los financieros del futuro que pasan por nuestra casa.

Un saludo,

MIF Admissions
