Mr. Pavel Krtek, Chairman of the Board of Directors of České dráhy, a.s., attended the annual reception event organised by the London branch office of the international law office “White & Case” on Thursday, January 26, for representatives of banks, financial institutions and leading European companies active in the field of capital markets.
The event representing an important venue in the field of capital markets creates a networking platform, associating professionals operating on the London capital market and other leading European capital markets, including the region of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). As far as the participants are concerned, the event is traditionally attended by representatives of leading banks – Barclays, Citi, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Société Générale or Deutsche Bank, as well as representatives of successful firms from all over Europe, which operate on capital markets. More than 500 participants had a possibility of getting more detailed information about the current development on the London capital market, of taking part in discussions about the current trends in the field of debt securities and participation certificates and of exchanging their opinions and experience originating from individual regional markets, including their comparison on a Europe-wide scale. On the occasion of the Australia Day the reception was connected with an exclusive-group visit to the exhibition of Australian impressionists which is currently held at the National Gallery in London.
