Financial Statements: Europe’s financial system structures transformed by EU policies, Brexit, and COVID-19

August 5, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

This webinar is hosted by the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE). For the most updated information and to RSVP, visit their registration page.

The European financial system is widely viewed as inefficient, fragmented, and overly bank-centric. Its structures are affected by developments that include the recent exit from a decade of turmoil in the euro area; EU policy initiatives such as unfinished banking union and barely started capital markets union; technological disruptions; the yearning for a role of finance in the transition to a greener growth model; Brexit; and the COVID-19 shock and its aftermath. This session will provide an opportunity to take stock.

This webinar is part of PIIE’s Financial Statements virtual event series. Joining this episode of Financial Statements are:

Host: Nicolas Véron, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE)

• Thomas Wieser, chairman of the EU high-level forum that produced the report “A New Vision for Europe’s Capital Markets” (June 2020)

• Simeon Djankov, PIIE Senior Fellow and director of the Financial Markets Group at the London School of Economics and Political Science
