2014 ECMI Annual Conference: The Five Years Ahead – A new action plan for Europe’s financial markets?


The ECMI Annual Conference is a major event in Brussels that brings together policy-makers, academics and international experts to discuss challenges for European capital markets integration policies and global financial reforms. This year's conference will discuss options for European capital markets to revert financial disintegration and relaunch a new plan of reforms for European capital markets. The conference will also assess the impact of financial reforms on European financial markets integration, taking stock of evidence discussed by panels of international experts. The conference consists of four sessions with keynote speeches and presentations, followed by panel debates with audience involvement.

Session 1. Macroeconomic and institutional outlook – Reverting Financial Disintegration: What implications for the future of the Euro area in the European Union?
Session 2. Law and Finance – Regulating under uncertainty: the impact of financial reforms on liquidity
Session 3. Market microstructure – Too fast too furious? The future of market microstructure and its role for a pan-European financial markets architecture
Session 4. Access to finance – Sourcing from the crowd: the ‘democratisation’ of finance?
