Greece: the die is cast

02.07.2015 - Philippe Waechter

Markets analysis by Philippe Waechter, chief economist.

"The deadline for the negotiations between the Greek government and the Troika (IMF, European Union, ECB) has passed - but Greece has not repaid the €1.6bn due to the IMF.


Yet, a final U-turn and a final proposal from the Greek government to the Troika yesterday gave rise to an unsuccessful Eurogroup phone conference. At the same time, the discreet request to the IMF for an additional repayment deferral went unheeded."
