Capital markets union: A countdown before Brexit

About

We are just three years away from the launch of the Capital Markets Union (CMU) Action Plan and coming to the end of the Juncker Commission. The CMU was designed to boost private sector investment in business and improve the eurozone’s stability with regard to a potential financial crisis – but is it on the right track, and is it possible to reach an agreement before Brexit takes place?

We have invited Ugo Bassi, European Commission Financial Markets Director, to share his insights with us.

The event is part of our exclusive ‘What the Chiefs Say’ series which brings together small groups of our senior-level members to discuss topical issues with a key decision-maker. These roundtable conversations will feature influential figures from international institutions, parliaments, governments, business, NGOs and the media.  Each 60-minute session gives our members a chance to put their questions to those who call the shots. The events are insightful and interactive, tackling today’s most burning issues.

Participation is by invitation only.
