This session will discuss the EU regulatory and supervisory priorities to overcome the fragmentation of the EU banking sector and progress towards a single banking market. Speakers will be invited to assess the measures needed to address the root causes of ring-fencing practices within banking groups and the regulatory priorities to ensure that the internal market for financial products and services, in particular retail ones, offers real economies of scale and encourages banks to expand their cross-border activities.
Points of discussion
- Why has the Banking Union failed to provide the degree of financial integration that was expected?
- Which EU policy priorities could overcome the fragmentation of the EU banking sector?
