BlackRock to bring European credit to Milan forum
Vasiliki Pachatouridi (pictured), product strategist within BlackRock’s iShares Fixed Income portfolio management group, will join the InvestmentEurope‘s Fund Selector Bond Focus Milan to discuss the opportunities within European credit.
Continuous accommodating ECB policies and stable European corporate fundamentals are the key to the asset class, Pachatouridi will say.
She will also touch upon the role of ETFs in accessing corporate bonds in a liquidity constraint world, and how ETFs have performed during previous times of increased volatility.
Pachatouridi’s service with BlackRock dates back to 2007, including her years with Barclays Global Investors (BGI), which merged with BlackRock in 2009.
Previously, she was a member of the iShares Emea Investment Strategies & Insights team, where she provided analysis of ETF products as well as education and research on the wider indexing space.
At BGI, she started her career within the Transition Management team. Pachatouridi earned MSc degree, with a first class honours, in investment management from Cass Business School in 2007 and a BSc degree in business administration from University of Bath.
