Most questions are not addressed to individual investors and savers, but to professionals. Therefore, we will not reply specifically to these questions but provide a general reply.

Consultation on the Review of the Insurance Mediation Directive (IMD)


We support the objectives of the consultation launched by the European Commission on the review of the Insurance Mediation Directive. It is essential to increase the level of policy holder protection to obtain the highest possible level, by improving the quality of information provided to customers. Thereby reinforcing transparency through the disclosure of total costs and of the inducements to avoid or at least spotlight conflicts of interest, harmonize the distribution of Insurance PRIPS.

MiFID Review - The European equity markets fragmentation has penalized small investors


The European MiFID Directive in force since November 2007 has pushed the European equity markets to fragment into multiple “trading platforms”: besides the existing “regulated markets” (RMs) “multiple trading Facilities” (MTFs) and “Systematic Internalisers” (SIs) - not to mention a growing, diverse and opaque “OTC” (over the counter) trade activity or dark pools - are now trading European equities.

Review of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MIFID)


Overall, MiFID has contributed to the further marginalization of individual investors, despite the fundamental economic purpose of the capital markets (as opposed to intermediate finance) that is to connect directly end investors and issuers of capital. MiFID facilitates the re-intermediation of equity markets to the benefit of financial intermediaries - especially those who could invest in information technology to profit from the fragmentation - and to the detriment of non financial issuers as well as end investors, pushing those further to “packaged” - i.e. high embedded commissions - products.

Legislative steps for the Packaged Retail Investment Products initiative


We strongly support the “horizontal” approach taken by the European Commission for its Packaged Retail Investment Products (PRIPs) initiative, which is the right way to harmonize selling practices of retail investment products because most of them are “substitutable” for each other, and most of them are or can be sold by the same intermediaries.
