The future of the European capital markets at ARIR Annual Forum
The Romanian Investors Relations Association (ARIR) organizes between 27th & 28th of May 2021, online, the third edition of ARIR Annual Forum. For the first time, the representatives of the European Commission and EuropeanIssuers are present at the event opening to convey directly from the source the regulation and development perspective of the European capital markets, implicitly for Romania. The representatives of the Financial Supervisory Authority and of the Bucharest Stock Exchange will present in detail the development strategy of the local market. In addition, the top management of the main listed companies, ARIR members, will join the discussion to share their business perspective and post-pandemic lessons.
For the first time, we plan to bring in front of the listed companies new investors, international and local ones, within a new concept – ARIR Investors Days. 6 listed companies, the Bucharest Stock Exchange, BRK Financial Group, MedLife, Purcari, Romcarbon and TeraPlast, will connect with medium-sized investors interested in new investment opportunities.
Daniela Șerban, ARIR President & Co-founder:
”Together with EuropeanIssuers, the European association of listed companies and national associations of which ARIR is a part of, we have initiated a national action plan to draw attention to the fact that many European companies will face difficult challenges in the next few years. Many of them are affected by financial imbalances and trade restrictions that threaten their very survival as a result of the restrictions imposed in the pandemic. Thus, we rely on the expertise and knowledge of one of the most important actors in Europe for a consistent dialogue with the European Commission and the national authorities to support maintaining a stable regulatory framework that allows for medium-long term planning, but also providing incentives for wider access to capital markets.”
The event brings over 10 international and local speakers, representatives of institutions, top managers of the largest Romanian companies, experts in finance and European legislation who will address the future development of capital markets, trends and opportunities.
