Join us at the exceptional International Investors' Conference in Vilnius on 30 May 2024, hosted by BETTER FINANCE, the European Federation of Investors and Financial Services Users, and the Lithuanian Investors Association (LIA). This landmark event, 20 years after Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia joined the EU in May 2004, will scrutinise the progress of the European Capital Markets Union (CMU) and its ability to serve EU citizens and enterprises effectively.

As the CMU approaches its 10th anniversary, pivotal questions come to the forefront: Has there been genuine progress towards creating a truly pan-European Capital Market? Does the CMU effectively support the real economy? Are individual investors and their interests genuinely prioritised?

Despite acknowledging households as the main source of long-term financing for the real economy, significant challenges remain in integrating them into capital markets. Key issues include access and distribution, independent advice, and investor protection.

This conference will explore the CMU's role in revitalising equity investment and ensuring fair market participation for all. Key topics include the development of the CMU, the Baltic region's contributions, and the impact of FinTech, AI, and Crypto assets on attracting individual investors, while also addressing the risks associated with these new trends.
