21 April 2021
To celebrate its 30th
anniversary and three decades of committing to the mission of supervising and
regulating financial markets and investor protection, the CMVM has prepared a
programme of initiatives that will take place over the next few weeks.
This set of activities will help to
highpoint some of the milestones in the development of the CMVM over the past
three decades; starting with institutional consolidation in the 1990s, followed
by the strengthening of the regulatory framework and information and investor
support in the first 10 years of this century and, in the last 10 years, crisis
response and contributions to simplification, financial innovation and the EU
capital markets union.
into 2021 and together with all market players, we look ahead with informed
optimism regarding the possibility of building a more efficient, more sustainable
capital market and that is increasingly at the service of citizens and
companies”, said the CMVM Chair, Gabriela Figueiredo
The CMVM's 30th anniversary celebration programme
starts on 29 April with an international seminar on auditing. Said is organised in partnership with the CIRSF - Research Center for
Regulation and Supervision of the Financial Sector bringing together national
and international experts, decision makers, regulators and industry
representatives to talk about “Supervision of auditors at a crossroads: lessons
learnt from landmark cases and the way forward".
A debate will
also be held on 25 May that will address the “Literacy
on the Capital Markets in Portugal: Findings and Challenges”.
This session will present the results of one of the most complete surveys
concerning specific literacy on the capital market carried out for our country,
with the support of the European Commission and which will lead to the drawing
up of a national literacy programme focused on the capital market.
