About the conference

Building on AFME and OMFIF’s respective expertise in European capital markets, financial regulation and economic policy, the virtual conference will bring together Europe’s most influential policy makers and opinion-formers, as well as key members of the regulatory community and business leaders from global financial institutions.

The theme for this inaugural event will be the impact of the health-turned-economic crisis on European financial integration, together with prospects for future economic development and financial structures of the EU. The pivotal role of integrated capital markets in helping European corporates and governments manage their recovery will be a specific focus.

Please note: We can now confirm the conference will take place in a virtual format due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. The event will be hosted on a state-of-the-art digital platform which offers excellent engagement and networking opportunities for our sponsors, attendees, and speakers.

This event is free to attend.
