The pandemic is a brutal reminder of the need to strengthen the resilience of our economies. Political and corporate leaders are under pressure to devise adequate strategies to support the recovery of Europe’s economy. Without doubt, the capital markets union (CMU) project has now taken on new relevance. The EU is about to become a major issuer and thereby advance the integration of government debt securities markets. It will provide more active support for equity capital in the case of SMEs – so far a domain mostly in the hands of member states. Further consolidation of the market players can thus be expected. To this end, the ECMI annual conference will provide insights from policymakers, industry representatives and academics on the continuation of the CMU project, the structure of equity and debt securities markets, and feature a special debate on the evolving role of credit rating agencies.
Day 1: Thursday, 5 November 2020, 13:00 – 14:00
Day 2: Friday, 6 November 2020, 09:00 – 13:00
