With over 400 participants, the 2012 ECMI Annual Conference brought together international experts in capital markets from industry, policy making and academia for a full day of discussion in Brussels. This year’s conference was structured around four sessions focusing on the following topics: the outlook for the euro area, the role of capital markets after bank deleveraging, market structure reforms and investor protection. Each session featured a keynote speech and a panel discussion. The conference was organised in partnership with the Centre for European Policy Studies and the Belgian Financial Forum.
