Bringing about an EU Capital Market, i.e. a true single market for capital for everybody, remains a priority for those who want to make Europe stronger, resilient and dynamic. With Covid 19 it is now urgent in order to rebuild the European economy. A High Level Forum on the Capital Markets Union has brought together 28 experts from a wide spectrum of professional and national backgrounds to recommend an array of concrete measures to get us closer to one single market for savings, investments and raising capital for dynamic firms. This webinar brings together two leading proponents from the High Level Forum to present the main recommendations, a leading European Commission official to discuss and assess them, and a leading representative from the financial industry to moderate a lively discussion with the audience.
