BETTER FINANCE Response to the Public Consultation on the Fitness Check on the EU Framework for Public Reporting by Companies


EU public reporting requirements for companies have been beneficial for EU citizens since more standardised and comparable reporting has increased scrutiny. The Accounting directives (financial and non-financial) and the Transparency directive have led to more standardised and comparable corporate reporting. This information allows EU citizens and investors to better understand the companies’ policies notably in terms of ESG.

BETTER FINANCE WELCOMES THE NEW EP ECON STUDY ON MIS-SELLING OF SUBORDINATED DEBT TO RETAIL INVESTORS AND NOTES ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR SLOVENIA


In June 2018 the ECON committee of the European Parliament published a study titled “Subordinated Debt and Self-placement: Mis-selling of Financial Products”. After five years of very diverse interpretations and applications of so-called “burden sharing” in bank recovery and resolution, also known as bail-in of subordinated bank creditors, the European Parliament’s ECON Committee examined whether subordinated bonds were sold to the general public as a consequence of weak and ineffective regulations (MiFID). It found that, on the contrary, such selling practices were in fact in breach of MiFID rules, which therefore qualifies such practices as mis-selling and entitles the wronged retail bondholders to compensation.
