The 10th Anniversary International Financial Markets Conference

4 October, 2024, Radisson Blu Hotel Lietuva, Konstitucijos Av. 20, Vilnius, Lithuania

The 10th Anniversary International Financial Markets Conference, co-organized by the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Lithuania, the Bank of Lithuania, and the Lithuanian Banking Association, proudly reconvenes high-level policymakers, entrepreneurs, and investors to discuss pivotal developments within regional and European capital markets.

Celebrated as a seminal forum in the Baltic region, the Conference has, over the past decade, earned acclaim for its comprehensive agenda that promotes meaningful dialogue between the public and private sectors.

This year, set against a landscape marked by profound geopolitical shifts, the conference will address critical issues at the heart of the European Union and Baltic capital markets. Central to our discussions will be the European Capital Markets Union, examining its significant influence on regional financial frameworks in these dynamic times and forecasting trends in the Baltic debt and IPO markets.

The Conference will offer a platform for rigorous debate, shedding light on the evolving trends and challenges that are defining the business environment for entities and investors throughout the Baltic region. Engaging with these issues, the event promises to equip participants with the insights needed to navigate and shape the future of financial markets in uncertain times.
