The 10th edition of the Euronext Annual Conference on 7 June 2022 brought together nearly 30 speakers and hundreds of participants, including representatives of listed companies, investors, private equity professionals, credit institutions, advisors, regulators and public authorities.
The role of capital markets in financing the transition to sustainable growth
Euronext's 10th Annual Conference was an opportunity to highlight the challenges and opportunities of efficient capital market financing for European companies. Testimonies from issuers, investors and financial market players shed light on the main strengths and challenges of capital markets: the potential of European capital markets to finance the growth of "Tech Leaders", the dynamism of the Paris financial centre after Brexit, how to make the Paris financial centre a benchmark for the climate transition, developing strategic autonomy for the capital markets union in the European Union, and better investing to support the climate and digital transitions in Europe.
Launch of Euronext Tech Leaders
Euronext and its international partners have announced the operational launch of the Euronext Tech Leaders European initiative dedicated to highlighting the visibility and attractiveness of high-growth and leading Tech companies towards international investors, together with a suite of services to support them along their listing journey.
