Unlocking Funding for Europe’s Growth – European Commission consults on Capital Markets Union

18.02.2015: The European Commission today launched its landmark project to unlock funding for Europe’s businesses and to boost growth in the EU’s 28 Member States with the creation of a true single market for capital. The Commission launched a three-month consultation round which aims to kick-start a debate across the EU over the possible measures needed to create a true single market for capital. Two complementary consultations on “high-quality” securitisation and the prospectus directive are also being launched today.
