Towards a coherent approach to Collective Redress


We welcome the opportunity to comment on Collective Redress. We regret though that the European Commission despite its long term awareness of the existing problems facing investors and all other users of financial services including SMEs, and despite recognition that the performance of the existing EU enforcement tools is not satisfactory, has not yet taken any concrete measure but chose to engage into a consultation again.
