Deep and integrated financial markets are key for the smoothing of economic cycles across countries, financial stability and the transmission of monetary policy. Yet, despite some recent improvements, the degree of financial integration in European capital markets remains limited. This is evidenced, for instance, by the large fragmentation of retail credit markets, subdued cross-border private risk sharing, and persistent home bias in portfolio allocations.
This workshop will look at the need and the main challenges ahead to accelerate the integration of European capital markets. This will involve understanding recent capital flows dynamics in the region, and discussing how to build more efficient market infrastructures, broaden access to market financing, and unlock idle capital for investment purposes.
