In a nutshell
EuropeanIssuers is the first and only pan European organisation created to promote the interests of issuing companies. It represents the vast majority of publicly quoted companies in Europe. Its members are national associations and companies from 14 European countries counting together some 9.200 listed companies with a combined market value of some € 5.000 billion.
The members of EuropeanIssuers come from various sectors including the automotive business, nutrition, energy, publishing, health care, luxury goods, construction, financial services and many more. What brings them together in EuropeanIssuers is that they are all owned by the public. The fact that these companies attract money from the market – as their securities are traded on stock exchanges and alternative markets across Europe - makes them subject to an impressive set of complex and stringent rules and regulations.
Through EuropeanIssuers listed companies can engage in direct discussions with the decision makers at European, trans-Atlantic and global level. Typical areas of interest include shareholder rights, corporate governance, clearing and settlement as well as financial reporting and auditing.
Our ultimate goal is to achieve fully integrated, liquid and well functioning European financial markets combined with good corporate governance and responsible shareownership.
EuropeanIssuers is an international not for profit association under Belgian law (ivzw-aisbl) based in Brussels. EuropeanIssuers' lobbying registration number with the European Commission is 20935778703-23.
