The Federation of European Securities Exchanges welcomes the publication of the European Commission's 'Action Plan on Building a Capital Markets Union' which is a thoughtful, well-structured package, giving priority to strengthening the European economy and stimulating investment to create jobs and growth.

In particular, FESE will focus on the following aspects outlined in the Action Plan:

  • The implementation and functioning of the European SME Growth Market Regime.
  • Review and analysing how the Prospectus Regime can benefit both companies and investors.
  • Analysing what further steps can be taken to reduce costs and regulatory barriers for companies seeking capital and providing greater investment choice to investors.
  • Contributing to the Commissions assessment of the cumulative impact of the financial reform on the investment environment.

FESE looks forward to contributing towards the success of this Action Plan by fully cooperating and supporting the Commission in its work.
