Date & time: June 5th, 2013 at 18.00 hrs Madrid local time

The purpose of this Master Class is to understand the different effects of Fed´s Quantitative Easing (“QE”) on both the US economy and on its financial markets. The Master Class will address the following topics:

– The essence of QE and other non-conventional Fed measures in recent years
– QE and financial markets
– QE and the US economy
– Fed exit strategies and portfolio strategies to match them

As the US economy is now giving signs of recovering in a more decisive way, investors are beginning to debate what will happen when the program is finally
phased out and “hand-holding” by the Fed stops. Mr. Henrik, as Chief Investment Strategist for BBVA one of Spain´s largest banks, will try to give insight on these issues.
