Europe: capital markets union - green paper and related consultations

The European Commission today published a green paper seeking ideas on how to create a "true single market for capital". Accompanying the green paper are two related consultations, one on the operation of the Prospectus Directive and the other on the securitisation framework. The green paper contains a short section on company law and corporate governance. In this section, the current revision of the Shareholder Rights Directive is mentioned; it is also stated that further reforms to company law may be helpful to help overcome barriers to cross-border establishment and operation.
