Capital Markets Union seeks input on European regulation adopted since the financial crisis

In an effort to jump-start Europe’s anaemic economic recovery, last year European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker announced the launch of the Capital Markets Union (CMU) initiative.

One of the main features of the CMU is a comprehensive review of the cumulative impact and coherence of the financial legislation adopted in response to the financial crisis, to assess the overall coherence of the existing European regulatory framework.
