Pension funds in the EU capital markets union

At this event, we assessed the prospects for funded pension schemes as a component of balanced retirement savings, and how the regulatory framework could become more supportive within the EU’s nascent capital markets union.

Date: March 28, 2018, 12:30 pm Topic: Finance & Financial Regulation

VIDEO & AUDIO RECORDINGS


Pension funds are the core of the institutional investment that could support greater financial integration and stimulate long term investment in the EU. The low interest environment and disillusionment with the performance of pension funds has led to a widespread retrenchment of funded schemes, and possibly a move back into the redistributive state systems. In this context the EU Commission in 2017 proposed a new personal pension product that will be portable across the EU.

EU support for SME IPOs should be part of a broader package that unlocks equity finance

The incoming Commission President has put support for SMEs at the centre of her economic programme. A public-private fund investing in initial public offerings should be carefully targeted, primarily at small firms with risky projects. The announced SME strategy and further measures under the Capital Markets Union programme should address numerous other barriers to both public and private equity finance.
