External conference organised by U.S. Chamber of Commerce

With the participation of ECMI Head of Research Diego Valiante


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Risk and Governance Initiative (GRGI) will be hosting Professor Anjan Thakor, John E. Simon Professor of Finance and PhD Program Director at the Washington University in St. Louis Olin School of Business, to discuss these issues, as outlined in the recent report International Financial Markets: A Diverse System is the Key to Commerce.  Distinguished representatives from the public and private sector will join Professor Thakor for panel discussions on the topic and how it relates to European efforts to address these issues through the proposed Capital Markets Union.

International financial markets are critical sources of financing for businesses of all sizes, ranging from small- and medium-sized enterprises to multinational companies.  However, the complexity and variety of approaches to regulating these markets has the potential to stymie growth and the ability of businesses to raise capital.  Recognizing how the global financial system links capital from savers and investors to main street businesses is critical to modernizing and updating current regulatory systems throughout the world.
