EFAMA’s publication lays out the asset management sector’s policy priorities for the next five years, building on the in-depth expertise of our members. This includes practical recommendations for keeping Europe competitive and developing deeper, more integrated and liquid capital markets in Europe.

The recommendations focus around four main objectives:


  • Make competitiveness a central element of all EU policies: To remain competitive on the global stage, Europe needs to remain an attractive place to invest and do business. 
  • Encourage European savers to invest more and promote retirement saving: Turning more savers into first time investors is a necessary condition for deepening European capital markets. It is also essential for citizens to secure their financial well-being, particularly in retirement. 
  • Unlock the full potential of sustainable finance by streamlining existing EU regulations: We applaud the leadership role taken by the EU in sustainable finance. But work remains to be done to achieve the objective of financing the transition towards a more sustainable world. 
  • Promote efficient, stable and integrated European capital markets and support digital innovation: Capital market infrastructure in Europe needs further harmonisation if we want to benefit from increased efficiency.
