Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to our upcoming Special Issue conference on the Capital Market Union (CMU) and its potential impact on pension development, with a special focus on risk management.

The CMU is a groundbreaking initiative by the European Union (EU) that hopes to create a single market for capital in Europe, aiming to promote market-based financing for business. In line with the establishment of the CMU, the European Commission (EC) has proposed the implementation of the Pan-European Personal Pension Products (PEPP) initiative, which aims to promote pension savings by investing in assets through the CMU. These initiatives are anticipated to have significant economic implications, including the enhancement of access to funding for business, promoting retirement savings among EU citizens, improving capital markets liquidity, enhancing the number of investment opportunities and risk diversification, among others.

We welcome you to submit papers with original contributions related to the Special Issue international conference entitled ‘Capital Market Union and the Pan-European Personal Pension Product (PEPP): Pension Adequacy, Market Structure, and Economic Implications’, which will take place on 4–6 September 2023, in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Special Issue aims to compile high-quality research papers that offer a discussion of the impact of the CMU and PEPP on the EU’s financial landscape. We seek contributions that are related to economics, finance, and accounting, and that particularly focus on risk management. We welcome theoretical and empirical studies that analyze the potential impact of the CMU and PEPP on business, institutional and/or individual investors, and markets efficiency; we also welcome papers that explore the regulatory related to their implementation, in the context of risk management.

Submitted papers will first be evaluated by the Editors. Please note that all papers will be subjected to thorough and rigorous peer review.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to engaging in thought-provoking discussions with you at the conference.
