The concrete outcome of the Commission’s Action Plan for a Capital Markets Union (CMU) consists notably of a call for the removal of constraints to facilitate SME financing and recognition of the need to facilitate infrastructure financing and securitisation through changes to the solvency II Directive and the capital requirements Regulation. However useful these proposals may prove to be, this Commentary finds that they do not address the main problem in Europe’s capital markets, namely that European household savings are not finding their way into more rewarding investments, which is caused by a variety of factors that cannot be easily changed.
