Abstract: The actions taken in the framework of the Lisbon Strategy and in the forthcoming EU2020 strategy are intended to improve the competitiveness of the EU¿s economy. To properly monitor the progress resulting from those actions, some indicators have been identified. One of those indicators is on the ¿cost of capital¿. The cost of capital is a key concept as it reflects the corporation¿s cost of investment funding. Thus, there is a need to develop an indicator to monitor how that cost changes over time. This report presents an overall cost of capital composite indicator that can be updated on a quarterly basis and is covering the EU-27, the euro area, and each of the 27 EU Member States. This composite indicator is based on the first three out of the four major sources of capital: loans, corporate bonds, listed equity, and unlisted equity.
