FESE welcomes CMU Action Plan as vital step to more equity capital financing

Default: Change to:

FESE welcomes the publication of the European Commission's 'Action Plan on Building a Capital Markets Union' which is a thoughtful, well-structured package, giving priority to strengthening the European economy and stimulating investment to create jobs and growth.

FESE will focus on the following aspects outlined in the Action Plan:

  • The implementation and functioning of the European SME Growth Market Regime.
  • Review and analysing how the Prospectus Regime can benefit both companies and investors.
  • Analysing what further steps can be taken to reduce costs and regulatory barriers for companies seeking capital and providing greater investment choice to investors.
  • Contributing to the Commissions assessment of the cumulative impact of the financial reform on the investment environment.

 Rainer Riess, Director General said: ‘Efficient public markets are the pivotal stage in the funding escalator, where regulated markets provide companies with the access to capital. We are part of a local ecosystem, which is vital to the development of small and mid-cap financing. The markets we operate are open, accessible, public, transparent, democratic, well-regulated, and highly efficient. Europe needs to shift its focus strongly to equity financing and further improve funding choices for issuers and investment opportunities for investors in order to create jobs and growth.’

FESE looks forward to contributing towards the success of this Action Plan by fully cooperating and supporting the Commission in its work.
