ESMA has published materials from its Financial Innovation Day held in December 2015. The day focused on “innovation in a Capital Market Union: harnessing innovation to improve access to finance and spur investment”. The materials available include key speeches and outlines of four panel discussions conducted on the topics of:

  • crowdfunding;
  • corporate bonds and whether innovation can reduce the liquidity gap in these markets;
  • Distributed Ledger Technology (Blockchain); and
  • leveraged loan funds.
