Meet us at European Investors Day in Frankfurt
Regardless of whether Brexit happens or not, the financial sector in continental Europe is already engaged in a transition process: quite simply because it knows that it will have to draw on its own resources to overcome its current difficulties in order to assert itself, once again, on the world stage.
And once again, as soon as it involves thinking and shaping the future of Europe, Germany and France stand side by side, partners and rivals at the same time, and time is ripe for extending their dialogue to their most trusted European partners. True to its tradition and convictions, L’Agefi wants to facilitate this debate.
Therefore, on 10 December 2019 in Frankfurt, it will organise its second European Investors Day (EID): the event, introduced last June in Brussels, aims at drawing all of those who want to build a genuine investment and finance industry in Europe, and to sketch out a vision for this industry's future.
And that, around a few simple questions:
- What monetary policy around what consensus?
- Can European integration be reignited through a strong impetus for the renewal of infrastructures in continental Europe, including, of course, the nowadays core issue of the fight against global warming in each of its countless dimensions?
- And what role can European financial stakeholders, from institutional investors to asset management companies, and also regulators, politicians, banks and insurers, play to contribute to the common goal?
Obviously, the choice of Frankfurt, by a French media, is by no means a coincidence; it reflects L'Agefi's strong belief that the Franco-German dialogue can once again crystallise ideas currently circulating in Europe. One question among others that needs to be adressed to make continental Europe's financial sector fully aware of its possibilities. This question is “Can the Paris-Frankfurt relationship assert itself in the field of sustainable finance?”
In 2019, during which L’Agefi has launched a new English media focused on the pan-European investment industry, namely Asset News, the EID in Frankfurt on 10 December seemed to us to be the best way of participating in the emergence of a finance and investment union which European professionals are calling for.
