Agenda – The Week Ahead 20 – 26 November 2017

On 21 November 2017 from 14.30 to 16.00 the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) is organising a Public Hearing on Pan-European Personal Pension Product (PEPP).

 

The PEPP Regulation proposed by the Commission in June 2017 aims to encourage the development of voluntary individually funded pensions and to strengthen the Capital Markets Union by helping to channel more savings to long-term investments in the EU. The proposal is accompanied by the Commission recommendation on the tax treatment of personal pension products, including the PEPP.

The purpose of this hearing is to receive information from stakeholders and experts on impact and practical consequences of this Regulation, which would introduce a new concept at the European level. Firstly, Members will hear representatives of insurers, asset managers, academia, consumer protection organisations and pension funds. Presentations will be followed by Q&A session with Members.
