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.

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.
