Francisco García Paramés -the renowned Spanish fund manager and founder of Cobas Asset Management- has unveiled Value School aimed at promoting financial culture among society.
The initiative, launched with the ethos of becoming a benchmark for financial learning (both physical and digital), is open to the participation of managers, institutions and other groups sharing similar educational goals.
Value School managing director Gonzalo Recarte, said: “Value School is aimed at all those who want to foster their financial culture from a neutral and independent perspective. The initiative is hoping to become a reference in which users not only find teaching material, but also share their knowledge.”
Value School’s physical headquarters will be based in 45 José Abascal, Madrid -in the same building of Cobas AM’s offices- where conferences, meetings and debates are to be held in order to meet the educational objectives the new initiative pursues.
On a digital level, Value School website will have from November, a blog and a multimedia space both providing contents. Those are divided into three different levels (basic, intermediate and advanced) representing the different levels users have. The web also offers a space dedicated to the analysis of financial books.
Asset managers Magallanes Value Investors, Equam Global Value, Cobas Asset Management (founded and led by Paramés), Solventis and Lyxor ETF will take part in the official presentation of Value School on 10 October in Madrid.
