On February 10, a roundtable discussing how the EU is accelerating its Capital Market Union project was held at Bloomberg’s offices in London, where our Founder and CEO Eric Mouilleron was also invited. The roundtable was led by Valdis Dombrovskis, Vice-President for the Euro and Social Dialogue (also in charge of Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union) at the European Commission.
The purpose of the roundtable was for FinTech firms to have an informal conversation with the Vice-President Dombrovskis and his team, and to provide an overview of their sub-sectors and businesses, the challenges, and how the EU could better facilitate the growth of FinTech and foster innovation in financial services.
During the roundtable, Vice-President Dombrovskis commented on the next steps in the EU regulatory agenda to maintain stability in the financial services sector while supporting the key role it has to play at the heart of any modern economy. He also set out the state of play on international regulatory initiatives.
