EuroFinUse Position Paper on Insurance Mediation


EuroFinuse in conjunction with the members of the Financial Services User Group (FSUG) wish to express their disappointment regarding the draft ECON report on the proposal for a Insurance Mediation directive. On 3 July 2012 the Commission published a proposal for a revision of the Insurance Mediation Directive (IMD 2). The goal of the Commission’s proposal is to upgrade consumer protection in the insurance sector by creating common standards across insurance sales and ensuring proper advice. Prior to this legislative proposal, the Commission consulted all stakeholders including the FSUG.

EuroFinUse Position Paper on the proposals in MiFID II on capital market structures


EuroFinUse presented its position on the proposals in MiFID II on capital market structures. MiFID II proposal from the EC does not in EuroFinUse's view fix this major market fragmentation issue and the induced lack of consolidated trade data readily available to small investors. Like MiFID I, this proposal it is still mainly aimed at satisfying financial institutions and intermediaries, rather than the real economy users, for whom the capital markets were developed in the first place. MiFID II only favours again the “reintermediation” of capital markets which used to provide the direct finance conduct for the real economy.

Response by EuroFinUSe to the AMF Consultation on the prevention of creeping takeovers and the promotion of mid and long term shareholder engagement


EuroFinUse directs the attention of the French public authorities to the serious defects of regulatory governance and financial supervision in France. EuroFinUse opposes to takeovers when small shareholders are deprived of a fair value of their investments, in particular with regards to the benefits of premium takeover by one or more controlling shareholders and to the protection mechanisms of listed companies aiming primarily at protecting the existing management to reduce the possibility of takeover by other shareholders. This position paper is only available in French.
