A new phase of the CMU is about to start, and might well resonate more strongly within
EU countries. Regulation of the London capital markets will soon diverge from that of the EU.
This will likely underline the United Kingdom’s deep integration with the EU in all areas of
non-bank finance, including the fintech sector. Moreover, Europe’s Green Deal will require
greater mobilisation of long-term and sustainable finance, sources of which within the EU
are still scarce. Also, in the wake of the 2020 recession there will be a much greater need to
replenish corporate equity, addressing the imminent solvency crisis of companies in several
EU countries. As financial instruments benefiting companies have been heavily cut back
in the EU budget covering the period up to 2027, such finance will need to rely on private
sources to a greater extent than previously anticipated.
