Mr Lee Foulger, a Cabinet Member to Commissioner Jonathan Hill with responsibility for Financial Markets and Capital Markets Union, will give a Cabinet-level view of progress and challenges to the Capital Markets Union during an EU Committee lunch.

The creation of a Capital Markets Union is a key pillar of the Juncker Commission’s Investment Plan. The Commission is  exploring ways of reducing fragmentation in financial markets, diversifying financing sources, strengthening cross border capital flows and improving access to finance for businesses and SMEs. Under the proposed plan, investment and finance systems in Europe that have traditionally relied on banks will be complemented and diversified. The aim is to unlock capital that is currently frozen in Europe, giving savers the possibility to better invest their funds across borders and giving businesses the opportunity to raise funds from a diverse range of sources.
