What Long-Term Investments for the Europe of tomorrow?

This conference took stock on the achievements regarding the creation of a conducive environment for long-term investments in Europe, from the Green paper on the Long-term financing of the European Economy by former Commissioner Barnier (2013) up to the Capital Markets Union (prudential regulation, accounting standards, governance issues…) and the Action plan on sustainable finance published earlier this year.

For the occasion was presented the report “Betting on the long term – Rebuilding investment for the Europe of tommorrow”, conducted by the task-force of Paris financial center under the supervision of former AXA financial director, Gérard de La Martinière.

 Just a few months before the next European elections, now it was crucial timing to assess what has been done and to determine the remaining barriers to address.
