CAPITAL MARKETS UNION: Refocusing the agenda on retail investors

 Registration is closed for this event
Due to multiple reasons – savings rates/net financial wealth, investor preferences/behavioural aspects, market structure and access, regulatory/supervisory frameworks and tax regimes – the asset allocation of retail investors varies considerably across member states. Ensuring that European households have access to fair deals, i.e. products with a rewarding risk-return profile and transparent cost structures should be considered a priority. Many bottlenecks still make access to capital markets difficult for retail investors, and often they do not benefit from the same safeguards as their professional and institutional counterparts. Moreover, given the rate of sociodemographic, technological and economic changes, the need to enhance investor confidence and protection has never been greater. The prolonged low-yield environment will also continue to put pressure on the capacity of financial intermediaries to deliver positive outcomes over time. What are the main factors influencing demand for avings/investment products across Europe? How can (in)direct retail participation in capital markets be fostered? Is the current supply fit for purpose? Are developments in manufacturing, distribution and financial advice moving in the right direction? Will transparency on cost and performance lead to more market discipline and betterinformed decisions? Should policy makers favour/promote certain products and/or investment strategies over others? Are ESAs and NCAs overseeing the interaction among the different sectoral and/or horizontal EU rules affecting retail investors in an effective manner?
