Position paper: Capital Markets Union

On 18 February, the European Commission published a Green Paper on ‘Building a Capital Markets Union’. In our view, the Green Paper marks the start of a dialogue between market agents and policy makers of how a balance can be struck between financial regulation and economic growth and financial stability. In this respect we support the European Commission to call upon long term financiers to take up the challenge that in an environment of constrained public resources alternative resources should be unlocked.

Position paper

PGGM and PFZW are committed to play an active and constructive role in this discussion and our viewpoints are listed in this position paper. After all, future investments and consequently economic growth is influenced by the choices made by investors like us.
