Objectives of the session

The objective of this exchange of views is to discuss how the EU fund sector may further contribute to the financing of the EU economy and to providing suitable investment opportunities to EU savers and what should be the priorities for the new Commission in this respect.

Topics that will be covered include the opportunities and challenges currently facing the EU fund sector, the priorities for developing the role that investment funds play in the channeling of investments to the EU economy and in facilitating investment and whether they are appropriately taken into account in existing EU policies and on-going initiatives such as CMU.
