On Thursday 15 December, Mayer Brown’s Capital Markets team in Germany invites you to an ad hoc webinar on the proposed EU Capital Markets Union package, including the Listing Act and amendments to OTC Derivatives Clearing in the EU.
On 7 December 2022, the European Commission proposed a host of measures designed to facilitate further development of the EU’s capital markets, in particular by:
- alleviating – through a new Listing Act – the administrative burden for companies of all sizes, in particular SMEs, so that they can better access public funding by offering their securities to the public and listing securities on stock exchanges;
- making EU clearing services more attractive and resilient, supporting the EU’s open strategic autonomy and preserving financial stability within the EU; and
- harmonizing certain corporate insolvency rules across the EU, making them more efficient and helping to promote cross-border investment.
