The CMU which aims to diversify the financing of EU businesses and better connect savings to investment was launched 18 months ago.
The CMU mid-term review will take stock of the progress made so far and update priorities. During this Seminar, we are focusing more specifically on four objectives that are key for achieving the CMU: developing EU equity markets, enhancing the consistency of insolvency and securities laws, developing the EU cross-border investment fund market, and leveraging blockchain and fintech developments.
Brexit is another major issue to be considered. On the one hand it is a major challenge for the CMU given the importance of the City for EU capital markets. On the other hand Brexit reinforces the need to further develop and integrate EU27 capital markets and achieve an ambitious CMU.
