Following the 2008 financial crisis a lot of new EU legislation saw the light. Now the time has come to focus on an effective implementation and enforcement of these new rules throughout the EU, and, in particular, of those impacting EU citizens as individual investors and financial services users.

This is why Better Finance has chosen to focus on the enforcement of EU rules governing financial services for the 2017 edition of its annual International Conference in Brussels.
