Task Force on Rebranding Capital Markets Union

First Meeting


With 3 building blocks, 7 key areas of priority and 42 policy actions, has the Capital Markets Union (CMU) project been successful in delivering deeper and more integrated capital markets in the EU? The opinions on progress (or lack thereof) are certainly mixed. The CMU remains as relevant as ever for EU-27 but it needs re-branding, re-focusing, new energy and momentum, as well as political support.?

To this end, CEPS and ECMI are inviting policymakers, industry representatives and academics to take part in a special Task Force chaired by Vítor Constâncio, former Vice-President of the European Central Bank. The Task Force aims aims at:

1. taking stock of what has been achieved so far since the adoption of the CMU Action Plan in September 2015;
2. identify areas to which priority should be given by the next Commission;
3. put forward a list of concrete and innovative policy recommendations.
