Financial regulation

EPRA company members are subject to various regulations applying to the financial markets. Our goal is to contribute to well-designed EU legislation that serves both regulatory and stability objectives, the economic interests of the listed property sector and the broader economy.    

The Capital Markets Union (CMU) is one of the flagship projects of the European Commission and aims to deepen the single market for capital across the EU. It is our view that the European listed property sector needs a more neutral and investment-friendly tax system, more inward and intra-EU investments, Europe to work smarter to fill the pensions gap and the withholding tax refund procedures improved as they prevent cross-border investments.
