König presents fixed income liquidity challenges at Zurich PFF
Blanca König (pictured), director and strategist covering fixed income iShares ETF’s at BlackRock’s Fixed Income Portfolio Management Group will discuss liquidity challenges at the InvestmentEurope Pension Fund Summit held on 12 May in Zurich.
With bond yields at a record low, many fixed income investors tend to focus on long-term, illiquid obligations in order to increase returns. König will discuss the challenges of this strategy for fixed income investors.
König has been with the group since 1999, including ten years with Barclays Global Investors (BGI), which merged with BlackRock in 2009, HypoVereinsbank and its subsidiary Indexchange, which merged with BGI in 2007.
Her previous roles included business development for German, Austrian and Swiss institutional and private wealth clients as well as iShares investment strategy.
She holds a BA degree in business administration and finance from Berufsakademie Berlin in 2002. She is a CFA charter holder and member of the German CFA society.
