The ECM Forum is participating in:
EuropeanIssuers Capital Markets Forum was held on 4 and 5 December in 2018 in Brussels, Belgium. Since 2008, EuropeanIssuers has been developing its advocacy activities and technical expertise. In the current political context, it has never been so important to influence EU capital markets legislation. Stricter regulatory requirements for listed companies increase the cost of capital and may put at a disadvantage EU companies competing globally.
Development of the Capital Markets Union (CMU) continues, whilst other crucial proposals and reforms are under way in the areas of corporate governance and company law, supervisory reporting and increased tax transparency. In this uncertain environment, publicly quoted companies (or publicly listed companies) need to think strategically, engage and prepare for the new political and regulatory landscape.
In 2018 we are celebrating EuropeanIssuers’ 10 years anniversary. The EuropeanIssuers Capital Markets Forum, organised to commemorate this milestone, will provide both a forward looking and a retrospective overview of the EU regulatory developments. It will also offer a platform to exchange views and ensure that EU policy creates an environment in which companies of all sizes can easily raise capital through the public markets and deliver growth and jobs over the longer term. The event will provide “food for thought” regarding political and regulatory challenges and opportunities.
