Gathering of data on the retail market

Study on the ownership of EU domiciled listed companies
The Financial Services User Group (FSUG) is the European Commission advisory group, which provides users' expertise and opinions on financial services policy issues. In the framework of the 2012 FSUG research budget, the group would like to investigate the ownership of the EU domiciled listed companies in order to better understand what shares are held by individual and institutional investors and how this evolved in the last two, three decades. The breakdown of investors could embrace households (individual investors), investment funds, pension funds, insurers as well as other institutions, and the idea would be to create a tool by which the shares of these investors could be measured regularly. It is expected that this data will be very useful for any future policy initiatives of the Commission relating to securities and investments markets, as well as corporate governance.September 2012Collection of expressions of interest closed;
