ECMI produces research on most topics related to capital markets in Europe. Our research covers a wide variety of matters such as financial stability and innovation, the integration of EU capital markets, their efficiency and EU regulatory policy with regard to banking, insurance, alternative investments and others.
The ECMI Research output is classified into four main categories, depending on the frequency and the depth of the analysis: commentaries, policy briefs, research reports and books. Scroll down for more information on each of these documents and access to our latest research output and our archive. Most of our research can be accessed free of charge.
Commentaries are short and timely comments on market developments or regulatory developments. We strive to provide our members and the public with a constant flow of these briefs to keep updated with the latest developments in the world of capital markets in Europe. Follow the link: Commentaries
Policy Briefs are short papers, of not more than ten pages, which discuss upcoming or recently implemented EU financial regulation and how it will affect market architecture, various business models, intermediaries, end-users, and other stakeholders. Follow the link: Policy Briefs
Research Reports can have three purposes: to present a synthesis of recent academic literature that may be pertinent to both market participants and regulator; to analyse how certain market trends may be altering the financial landscape in Europe; or to offer views on the regulation of capital markets (10-50 pages).

Books carry out either very detailed and in-depth analyses of a particular subject related either to the regulation of, or to the development/efficiency/stability of European capital markets, or they cover a broad range of topics related to these subjects with the purpose of presenting a coherent view unifying them within a theme (120 pages or more).

Task Forces are structured meetings that bring together representatives from the industry and researchers to discuss the impact of regulatory developments. These structured meetings are organised by ECMI in partnership with CEPS, the Centre for European Policy Studies, one of Europe's most renowned think tanks. Follow the link: Task Forces
