On 8 June 2017, the Commission reported on the progress made so far in implementing the 2015 CMU Action Plan. The Mid-Term Review also sets out nine new priority actions with the timeline to be unveiled in the coming months. At present, capital markets are at different stages of development in Europe, and matching the supply and demand on a cross-border basis is still impaired. Strengthening the long-term savings and investment channel through well-functioning, deeper and highly integrated capital markets remains a priority. This would then lead to more alternative financing sources for companies, better options for retail/institutional investors, and enhanced market-based, private risk-sharing mechanisms.

With the participation of:

Niall Bohan, Head of Unit, Capital Markets Union, DG FISMA, European Commission


  • Georg Ringe, Director, Institute of Law & Economics, University of Hamburg
