Asset Allocation in Europe

What challenges and opportunities lie ahead?

0

BACKGROUND

In the coming years, asset allocation will be impacted by the changing macroeconomic environment, evolving investor demographics, technology and regulation. The purpose is to contribute to the public debate about the need to facilitate European households’ access to savings products with stable returns over time, and to promote long-term investment across the EU through more capital markets-based financial intermediation.

Detailed information is available on this dedicated webpage.

MAIN OBJECTIVE

This Task Force aims to engage a diverse group of stakeholders in a structured dialogue to: 1) identify the factors at macro- and micro- level driving investment decisions; 2) analyse their impact on households/retail investors and on different categories of financial intermediaries; and 3) put forward a list of recommendations to strengthen the long-term savings & investment channel in Europe.
