Possible discussion points:


On 30 November the European Commission published its proposal for a new prospectus regulation as a key element in its Capital Markets Union initiative. The aim of the new regulation is to lower the cost of raising capital while providing investors the information they need. Does the European Commission proposal succeed in striking this balance?
