Increasing retail participation in capital markets post-Covid19: utopia or necessity?
The Covid19-induced market turmoil will have done little to restore investor confidence in markets… The panel will focus on the relevant recommendations of the High-Level Forum on the Capital Markets Union and address retail participation by answering these two questions:
How to foster investor confidence?
How to provide for an adequate retirement income?
UCITS and AIFs: ready to meet future investor needs?
The panel will put the future of UCITS into perspective, reflecting on the reasons of its worldwide success and the conditions that need to be in place to preserve its attractiveness going forward. Panellists will also consider whether the current range of EU fund vehicles (UCITS, AIFs, ELTIFs, …) remains adequate to meet investors’ needs and will discuss what improvements may be required to meet future investor demands.
Drinks reception (until 20.00)

How to improve ESG disclosures to unleash the potential of sustainable finance?
Making sustainable finance work in practice requires improved ESG data disclosures by investee companies. The panel will discuss both legislative and market-led solutions for addressing the ESG data challenge. Panellists will discuss what ESG data is needed and whether a central ESG database or public register can be part of the solution. They will also address how to get the review of the Non-Financial Information Directive right.
Regulatory panel: what have we learned from the Covid-19 market reaction?
Prominent regulators and policy makers will draw lessons from the Covid-19 crisis, provide their perspective on the long-term implications of this crisis for asset managers and their investors and discuss what could be done to further strengthen the resilience of the industry in times of trouble.
