The future of the European Supervisory Authorities, their role and missions, is a highly debated issue. While the European Commission has just published a white paper on the future of the European Monetary Union (EMU) and the architecture of the European supervision is questioned (EIOPA for insurance and occupational pensions, ESMA for financial markets, EBA for banks), should we conduct a major institutional change, especially in the context of the Brexit ? Should there be an unique Supervisory Authority?

This seminar follows a first one organised in June 2016 by Confrontations Europe, which focused on ESMA in the perspective of the Capital Market Union. This time, the seminar will highlight the role of EIOPA.

Celebrating the first year of the new prudential regime Solvability II, what is its impact on long-term investment and how EIOPA, acting as a coordinator, can make sure a level playing field is in place between Member States? Which consequences can bring the revision of the three Authorities on EIOPA regarding the convergence of supervision and a common culture of supervision in the distribution of financial products?

Debates will be held in English.
