Spanish Economy Minister to Meet John Paulson, Expansion Says
Spanish Economy Minister Luis De Guindos will meet Paulson & Co. hedge-fund founder John Paulson as he seeks investor support for government reforms, Expansion said, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter.
Guindos’s finance-industry meetings on Feb. 27, to promote initiatives such as Spain’s bank-overhaul plan, include sessions with Richard Axilrod, a managing director at Moore Capital Management LLC hedge fund, and Derek Kaufman, head of global fixed income at Citadel Asset Management, the Madrid-based newspaper reported.
The minister will also meet Lloyd Blankfein, chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS), which is organizing Guindos’s road show along with Citigroup Inc. (C) and Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (BBVA), Expansion said.
