How to improve national insolvency regimes

How can we reduce divergencies in national corporate insolvency regimes in order to create an integrated Capital Markets Union?

Director of Strategy, Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME),

event recording

An important component of the European Commission’s action plan to foster a Capital Markets Union is the effort to improve and harmonize national corporate insolvency regimes, for which Commissioner Hill has announced a legislative proposal would be published before the end of 2016. This session will explore this complex but essential issue in more detail, based on a new detailed report published by the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME). While much of the debate is of a technical legal nature, the discussion will emphasize the economic implications at stake, and the scope for EU policy to add value to national reform initiatives.
