EPISODE ONE

Controlling or Stimulating: An Analysis of EU Financial Services Policy

In this episode, Josina Kamerling, head of regulatory outreach for CFA Institute for Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, takes listeners through a range of issues facing EU markets, from blockchain technologies to deposit guarantees to sustainability standards, among others.

She posits that success rests not with the decisions that are reached per se, but rather through the strength of the union that is formed to address these manifold challenges. Further, this future union will play a critical role in creating a European voice that is heard, and respected, on the world’s stage. Full series: http://eufin.cfainstitute.libsynpro.com/

 

EPISODE TWO

The EU’s Strength is Also Its Weakness: Unraveling the EU Political Gordian Knot

What will happen on the fateful dates of May 23-26, the period set down for elections throughout the EU member states? Though it’s not always easy to see, the European Union has been built on consensus. Achieving consensus has never been easy or pretty, but it’s the bedrock of the EU. And in an era of rapid change—Brexit, new political parties, new regional alliances, and changing U.S. policies—it’s also the driving force behind what appears to be politically intractable gridlock.

But according to Josina Kamerling, head of regulatory outreach for CFA Institute for Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, consensus will be the savior, not the undoing of the EU. In this episode, she explains why there’s too much at stake for Europe’s leaders not to come to the table once again to solve their myriad political and economic challenges.
