The European Commission, which is the executive branch of the European Union welcomes incoming president elect Ursula von der Leyen. Formerly minister of defense for Germany, von der Leyen and her team of commissioners are bringing new energy to the Commission. In this podcast, Josina Kamerling, head of regulatory outreach for CFA Institute for the Europe, Africa and the Middle East explores their ambitious agenda. She said it includes generating more awareness among people about what the EU is doing for them, consummating the work of the prior commission — from banking to Brexit and a host of items in between — a European green deal, wage fairness, and the integration of environmental, social and governance standard into the finance industry, among other items. Karmerling also delves into the agenda items of three commissioners on von der Leyen’s team in this comprehensive podcast.
