Accompanying position paper: 'EuropeanIssuers vision of the Capital Markets Union'

Europe needs well performing capital markets to help companies to finance growth and innovation, which are both urgently needed in Europe. EuropeanIssuers has thus welcomed from the very beginning the European Commission’s project of creating a Capital Markets Union (CMU), which would be able to foster the flow of capital throughout Europe. While we welcome the actions taken so far, we would take this opportunity, as end users of capital markets and financial services, to present our vision of what issuers truly want from the CMU and how our needs would best be taken into account.
