Speech by Eric de Montgolfier at the ECMI Annual Conference 2021

02 Dec 2021
Invest Europe

Invest Europe CEO, Eric de Montgolfier, was a key guest at the Annual Conference of the European Capital Markets Institute on December 2nd, 2021. During the event, entitled “Private equity and the Capital Markets Union”, he spoke about the crucial role our industry plays in supporting European businesses, describing how EU regulation can help private equity support the twin digital and green transition. His intervention focused on the different legislative initiatives the European Commission could take to incentivise private capital, from the review of the AIFMD fund marketing passport to changes to be brought to the prudential legislation covering institutional investors such as insurers (Solvency II) and banks (CRR). He also called for a review of the MiFID investor categorisation rules and welcomed the review of the voluntary ELTIF passport aimed at opening the market to some types of retail investors.
