A functioning Single Market stimulates competition and trade, improves efficiency, raises quality, and helps cut costs. Complemented by the Capital Markets Union, the European Commission’s vision is to create deeper, and more integrated, capital markets which aims to lower costs and makes the market more resilient. How far are we from achieving this vision? What is the role of Financial Market Infrastructures? What will be the tangible benefits for market participants and end-users? What are the challenges and what will be the consequences for the CMU in the light of the UK's vote to leave the EU? Join us for a discussion with the ECB and industry representatives to explore next steps towards making the vision a reality.
