Newsletter - Financial Reforms August 2017

Dear reader,

The EU moves forward in regulating a Capital Market Union that enhances transactions and financing by financial markets rather than by banks. In contrast, the G20 does not take any initiative to further reform the financial sector while there is some progress in tackling tax fraud. In order to advise the European Commission to undertake action to make the financial sector more environmentally and socially sustainable, an interim report of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance has launched a consultation to which all are invited to comment. More information about all these issues can be found in the articles in this edition of the Financial Reforms Newsletter.

In case you have not done so yet, we would like to ask you again to fill in our survey which would help us a great deal in improving this newsletter.

Until next time,
The Financial Reforms Newsletter team.
