Capital Markets Union – What role for banks

Capital Markets Union – What role for banks

The Association of German Banks cordially invites you to the livestream on Tuesday, 16 February 2021, 16.00 – 17.00 (CET).

Last year, the European Parliament and European Commission both campaigned for a deepening of Europe’s capital markets. Capital markets union promises answers to a whole range of challenges: it will provide the capital needed for reconstruction after the covid crisis, fuel the financing of economic innovation, enable more citizens to participate in growth and strengthen the sovereignty of the EU in a world of global competition – especially following the exit from the EU of the United Kingdom with London as a global financial centre.

Where should the focus lie if this project is to be successful? What guidelines should drive capital markets union? What will become of the bank loan? How will banks function as intermediaries between investors on the one hand and issuers on the other? What role do banks have to play in the capital market at all – and what role should they play in the future?
