20 - 20 March 2018 / Brussels /

This is the Brussels book launch of Finance and Investment: The European Case. It is the product of a two-year research programme entitled Restarting European Long-Term Investment Finance (RELTIF) organised by Assonime and CEPR. The programme brought together leading researchers from across the world to consider the causes for the persistently low level of investment in Europe, to examine the extent to which the financial system was a contributory factor and to identify possible policy remedies for it. It considered the relation of finance to corporate sector investment, the lending behaviour of banks, the provision of equity financing, the role of public sector institutions, regulation and taxation. The chapters provide one of the most comprehensive and thorough analyses of any financial system that has been undertaken to date.
