In the coming years, asset allocation will be impacted by the changing macroeconomic environment, evolving investor demographics, technology and regulation. The purpose is to contribute to the public debate about the need to facilitate European households’ access to savings products with stable returns over time, and to promote long-term investment across the EU through more capital markets-based financial intermediation.
Detailed information is available on this dedicated webpage.
This Task Force aims to engage a diverse group of stakeholders in a structured dialogue to: 1) identify the factors at macro- and micro- level driving investment decisions; 2) analyse their impact on households/retail investors and on different categories of financial intermediaries; and 3) put forward a list of recommendations to strengthen the long-term savings & investment channel in Europe.
With the new European Parliament and European Commission, it is important to avoid the CMU becoming another legislative scoreboard. The task force report aims to provide a long-term vision for retail & institutional investors as well as supervisors & policy makers.
