The European financial system is widely viewed as inefficient, fragmented, and overly bank-centric. Its structures are affected by developments that include the recent exit from a decade of turmoil in the euro area, EU policy initiatives such as unfinished banking union and barely started capital markets union, technological disruptions, the yearning for a role of finance in the transition to a greener growth model, Brexit, and the COVID-19 shock and its aftermath. This session will provide an opportunity to take stock.
