The CMVM is committed to taking an active part in reflecting on market development as a financing alternative available to families and companies. This year, the CMVM commenced a process that will lead to a proposal for the revision of the Securities Code in order to better adapt Portugal to current and future challenges, and firmly believing that national and international competitiveness is also achieved on a regulatory level.
