Fin Tech A more competitive and innovative European financial sector


BETTER FINANCE welcomes the initiative from the European Commission on its consultation on FinTech. Our organization believes that indeed Fintech could make financial services more effective, more competitive and easier to use, and therefore benefit savers, individual investors and other financial services users. We write “could” as there are conditions for Fintech developments to translate into benefits for EU consumers, and also because a more definitive assessment would require a high level of knowledge and understanding of the newest digital technologies such as DLT, AI, etc. that we do not possess as an NGO with limited resources.

PR - ROBO INVESTING AND FINANCIAL GUIDANCE - 130617


Robo- and Cyborg-Investing is still an emerging trend, but one that is growing and evolving rapidly. BETTER FINANCE believes that it can lead to significant benefits for EU citizens as savers and individual investors, and therefore to the real EU economy as a whole, in bad need of a more direct and stronger link between savings and the real assets they are invested in. Already now, the sector is providing significantly lower and more transparent fees, based – as mentioned – on a fee-based business model.

Azione MPS, the Association of Small Individual Shareholders and member of CONAPA, sent out a letter today addressed to the Public Authorities of the European Union and of the Italian Republic. The letter points to the main contradictions at the heart of the forced state intervention in the listed company Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena (precautionary recapitalisation with burden sharing) that goes against the rules and principles of Commercial Law as well as the policies pursued by the European Commission towards the creation of the Single Capital Market and which will mainly cause detriment to over 150,000 Small Shareholders who collectively own more than 55% of the Company.
