Interest turns to strategies in New York roadshow

Investors attending the Athens bourse?s annual roadshow in New York are turning their attention more to Greek companies and plans aimed at getting through the crisis, looking beyond the country?s poor fiscal health, an official said on Friday.

In a two day event that winds up on Friday, the Athens bourse and 15 listed companies met with 85 fund managers in 300 meetings in New York.

?There is interest from investors,? a Greek official taking part in the roadshow told Kathimerini English Edition.

?They are now focusing more on the companies and their strategies rather than the country?s crisis,? the official added.

Foreign investors held 50.8 percent of stocks traded on the Athens bourse in April, steady from the same month a year earlier where the figure was 50.3 percent.

National Bank, Alpha Bank, Coca Cola Hellenic, Bank of Cyprus, Hellenic Exchanges, Hellenic Petroleum, Motor Oil and Intralot, were among the companies that took part in the road show.
