The ECMI Statistical Package presents a comprehensive collection of the most relevant data on various segments of European and global capital markets*. It enables users to trace trends so as to highlight the ongoing transformation of capital markets, including the structural changes brought about by competitive forces, innovation and regulation. It represents an important step towards overcoming the existing data fragmentation on the evolution of European capital markets by offering a ‘one-stop-shop’ for market participants, regulators, academics and students.
The 2020 version contains data on equity markets, debt securities, securitisation, covered bonds, exchange-traded and over-the-counter derivatives, asset management, mutual funds, insurance companies and pension funds, and global comparative data. Each table is associated with a corresponding illustrative figure, giving a visual overview of the most important trends. A user-friendly navigation is embedded in the programme allowing users to explore the comprehensive package in an easy and purposeful manner.
