The big bosses of two of the biggest U.S. investment houses JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley, which have provided significant support to the international Greek “success story” and have provided important work and advisory services for Greece, are going to visit the country in the near future for contacts with political and economic paragons.
Morgan Stanley investment strategy general manager, Max Mesny will be in Athens on Friday and will participate in the day-long conference organized by the Athens Stock Exchange on tools and financing options for business in Greece. Morgan Stanley is among the international firms whose successive analyzes since late 2012 to this day supports the positive outlook for the Greek economy.
The visit of the head of JP Morgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, in July, is seen as even more important. The CEO of the American firm that played a leading role in the first Greek attempt to re-enter markets with a 5-year bond, is scheduled to meet with PM Antonis Samaras and bankers.
The Prime Minister had met the bankers in New York last year, while James Dimon had confirmed reports in Bloomberg that JP Morgan was instrumental in preparing the demand for the Greek bond issue, stating that the agency "is in everyone's interest to help Greece recover and grow and we at JPMorgan are happy to contribute."
