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.
