New study: Transparency on the financial markets is hampered by costly and unregulated access to market data

Financial market data enable security dealers and traders to make fundamental choices such as which financial instruments to buy, as well as when and where to buy them.

In our new study, we find access to market data has been restrained the past ten years: Market data fees have increased some 30%-60% and complexity of attaining the data has soared. We find that the obstructed access to market data is hampering the transparency and efficiency of financial markets. This will ultimately increase cost of capital, particularly for smaller companies, and deter return for retail investors.

New study: A Single Market for services plays a key role for EU welfare and prosperity

Services are increasingly important for overall EU competitiveness. They account for an increasing share of the EU economy and they form an integral part of the Digital Economy and innovation.

From a business perspective, the reality of the Single Market for services falls short of expectations. The Single Market has on average reduced trade costs by 20 per cent for goods but only 7 per cent for services.

This calls for a Single Market. Not one Single Market for goods, another for services and a third for digital activities.

Today, Managing Partner, Martin H. Thelle, presents the results from this study of the Single Market for services at the Irish Representation in Brussels. The study points to six concrete areas where improvements to the Single Market for services can be made.
