After meeting with representatives of Pacific Investment Management Co. (PIMCO), which manages the world’s biggest active bond fund, on Monday in London, Greek conservative leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis was due to hold talks with executives from other investment funds such as Blackrock, Blackstone, Paulson, and Brevan Howard.

On Tuesday, Mitsotakis is scheduled to meet with executives from the Financial Times.

The leader of New Democracy opposition will wrap-up his three-day visit at the British capital on Wednesday before traveling to Frankfurt, Germany, for talks with President of the European Central Bank Mario Draghi and ECB Executive Council member Benoit Coere.

“Mitsotakis is seen as the next prime minister of Greece, and those who have invested money in Greece – as well as those who are examining the possibility of doing so – naturally want an opportunity to form a first-hand opinion of his intentions,” a source told Kathimerini.

Last week, an opinion poll, conducted by the University of Macedonia for Skai, put conservative New Democracy 11.5 percentage points ahead of leftist SYRIZA, which leads the ruling coalition.
