Hide / Show Abstract

Building connected capital markets will reduce the over-reliance of European firms on bank lending at a time when the banking sector is still fragile in many countries. Diversifying both the domestic and cross-border sources of financing will lead to efficiency gains and help companies to expand, while allowing for a better sharing of risk among investors. Bank lending could be complemented by alternative financing, including securitisation, covered bonds, venture capital and private placements.
