The Capital Markets Union Action Plan – key challenges in France

The event will focus on the European commission’s Action Plan towards a Capital Markets Union in three key areas: tax incentives for risky equity investment, public support for venture capital, and raising minimum insolvency standards. The key conclusion of Policy Network’s report Supporting Investors and Growth Firms: A Bottom-Up Approach to a Capital Markets Union was that the EU needs an equity revolution – and these three policy areas can be transformative in this respect if implemented effectively.

Hosted by the French Private Equity Association (AFIC) in Paris, the event focus will be on France’s policies towards innovative and fast-growing SMEs. It will bring together a high-level audience of government advisers and policymakers with SME representatives, banks, private equity firms and business angels. Policy Network senior adviser Thomas Aubrey will introduce the discussion by briefly setting out the key challenges for France identified in Policy Network’s report.
