The EUROPEAN IPO TASK FORCE REPORT was launched today, in Brussels.
ABEL SEQUEIRA FERREIRA, the Executive Director of AEM (the PORTUGUESE ISSUERS ASSOCIATION), is the only Portuguese member of the European IPO Task Force.
The EUROPEAN IPO TASK FORCE is composed of corporate representatives and independent experts from major segments of the financial sector involved in the admission of companies to listing.
The REPORT outlines the issues at stake and presents policy recommendations to reverse the trend of the falling number of IPOs on European markets.
The RECOMMENDATIONS to improve conditions for European IPO markets should serve as inspiration for the European Commission in developing its new SME strategy and Capital Markets Union (CMU) initiatives, and also address policy-makers, regulators and market participants at the European and national level.

The REPORT is available here.
