Capital Markets Union: Council agrees position on easier access to financial markets for SMEs

As part of the capital markets union, the EU is taking steps to help small and medium businesses access new sources of funding.

EU ambassadors today endorsed the Council’s position on a proposal to give an easier access to SMEs trying to list and issue securities on financial markets, while safeguarding investor protection and market integrity. The initiative concerns specifically “SME growth markets”, a recently introduced category of trading venue dedicated to small issuers. On the basis of this text, the Presidency will start negotiations with the European Parliament on 6 March.
