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.

EuroFinuse Presentation on "What can the Audit Committee do better?"


EuroFinUse participated on the FEE Roundtable on the functioning of audit committees and Jella Benner-Heinacher presented shareholders's perspectives. The board acts as the agent of all shareholders and the quality of the board members and the members of the audit committee (AC) is decisive. Therefore, minimum one financial expert in the AC can give the AC a more responsible role in the audit process.
