Recent Developments in European Capital Markets – Key findings from the 2016 ECMI Statistical Package

Thursday, 16 February 2017

This paper presents the key findings reported in the 2016 ECMI Statistical Package, a comprehensive and up-to-date database compiled annually on the dynamics of European and global capital markets (covering the US, Japan, China and all other relevant markets). The Package aims to enable users to trace trends and illustrate the ongoing transformation of capital markets, including the structural changes brought about by competitive forces, innovation and regulation. This paper follows the same structure as applied in the ECMI Statistical Package, and consists of five main sections: equity markets, debt securities, exchange-traded derivatives, over-the-counter derivatives and asset management (mutual funds).

Roberto Musmeci was a Research Trainee at ECMI at the time of writing this report. Apostolos Thomadakis, Ph.D. is Researcher at ECMI.
