AT LEAST 619 UCITS EQUITY FUNDS FOUND IN BREACH OF KEY EU DISCLOSURE RULES AS POOR ENFORCEMENT PROSPERS IN SEVERAL KEY COUNTRIES


Renewed research by BETTER FINANCE finds that at least 30% of the main actively managed UCITS equity funds (those with a ‘fund benchmark’ ) still do not comply with key disclosure requirements for benchmarks as stipulated in EU Rules. In the face of persistent poor enforcement in our view in some major fund domiciles, BETTER FINANCE sees no other way but to name the perpetrators and failing jurisdictions it identified.

BETTER FINANCE Feedback on a Regulation on European Crowdfunding Service Providers for business


BETTER FINANCE already raised the issue that only a limited number of larger SMEs are likely to benefit from a Capital Markets Union. As such, introducing an EU framework enabling crowdfunding platforms to provide their services across the Internal Market should be beneficial for both investors and SMEs. However, BETTER FINANCE remains skeptical regarding the choice of the framework as it doesn't seem sufficiently investor-oriented. Indeed, the proposal only introduces a stand-alone crowdfunding regime (named European Crowdfunding Service Provider).
