2016 ECMI Annual Conference - Towards the right policy mix for a thriving European capital market

The 2016 ECMI Annual Conference was jointly organised by the European Capital Markets Institute and the Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis at Imperial College Business School. Hosted by the National Bank of Belgium, this high-level event brought together over 30 speakers (academics, policy-makers, and market participants) to share their expertise with more than 300 participants from across Europe and beyond and to discuss the challenges in creating a genuine European capital market. 

This high-level event featured four separate sessions with keynote speeches/presentations followed by panel debates on: i) the consequences of a prolonged low interest rate environment for the financial institutions and the real economy, ii) the suitability of capital markets-based solutions in dealing with the portfolios of nonperforming loans straining the banking sector, iii) the need for a single European capital markets supervisor, iv) the impact of the distributed ledger technology on trading and post-trading market infrastructure.
