Unlocking Europe’s Hidden Capital Markets (Brussels, 06 November 2019)

As the EU is setting its priorities for the next five years, a rigorous assessment of the Capital Markets Union (CMU) and a new focus is required. The CMU has been successful in terms of legislation, but much less so in its impact on markets, which remain highly fragmented. There is a need for re-branding and political support at the highest level if CMU is to achieve its objectives. Last year, our annual conference focused on equity markets. This year, we will bring together policymakers, industry representatives and academics to exchange views on the continuation of the CMU, the functioning of sovereign and corporate debt securities markets as well as feature a special debate on sustainable finance.
