Press Release: European elections: what are the challenges for the Paris marketplace? A major challenge: to strengthen the competitiveness and sovereignty of the European Union

  • The European elections of 26 May 2019 revealed a renewed interest in the European Union, as demonstrated by the high turnout, and resulted in deep changes in political representation.
  • On 7 June 2019, the Association Française de la Gestion financière (French Asset Management Association – AFG) asked three recognised experts to identify the consequences of this reconfiguration of the European political landscape. Marcel Grignard, Chairman of the think tank Confrontations Europe, Stéphane Janin, Head of Global Regulatory Development, AXA Investment Managers and Chairman of the AFG’s European and international Regulation Commission, and Wolf Klinz, German Liberal Democrat Party MEP, who has played a particularly active and positive role over the past few terms of office, shared their analysis at a conference held at MEDEF, which was attended by representatives of the French asset management industry and French and European authorities.
