Well-functioning, deeper and highly integrated capital markets are expected to play a greater role in unlocking long-term savings and investment channels in Europe. The Capital Markets Union (CMU) initiative has set out important priorities in the area of asset allocation, such as increasing retail participation, promoting sustainable investment, and removing barriers to cross-border activities. This project must go beyond the actions set for end-2019 with a revamped strategy for EU-27.

This third Interim Report is based on the discussions among the experts present at the Task Force meeting held on 20 March 2018, additional secondary research and targeted bilateral consultations. The main ideas will be considered in the Final Task Force Report, which will put forward a series of policy recommendations supported by in-depth quantitative and qualitative analysis.
