About the event

Joining forces to bring together their respective expertise in European capital markets, financial regulation and economic policy, AFME and OMFIF are pleased to announce their 2nd Annual European Financial Integration Conference on Friday 24 June 2022.

The event will take place in the financial centre of Frankfurt and will bring together Europe’s most influential policy makers and opinion-formers, as well as key members of the regulatory and business community, for a day of thought-provoking content and debate.

Following the success of the inaugural conference, this year’s meeting will examine the state and competitiveness of the EU’s financial services sector and asses how the pandemic and other factors are impacting its financial integration journey. The pivotal role of well-developed, integrated capital markets in attracting global capital to the EU and enabling economic transition will be a specific focus.

This event is free to attend.
