Activities Report 2013

Activities Report 2013

We can look back on a successful year, during which two major implications were published, and many activities took place addressing the many different themes that are within ECMI's remit. The publications on 'Price Formation in Commodities Markets' and 'Savings for Retirement and Investing for Growth' are the results of many months of hard work, but also address very topical issues, the financialisation in commodities markets and the the creation of vehicles for long term financing. Both reports attracted wide media interest and were presented in many different locations.

Seven years since ECMI is incorporated, we can also look back to a healthy membership and financial situation. ECMI now has 44 members, representing many different angles of capital markets. We managed to attract more revenues through our events and participation in tenders with EU bodies. We would like to thank all our members for the support we receive and the many suggestions they give for our day to day work. In a post-crisis context, capital markets development will continue to be a matter of great policy importance in the months and years to come.
