INVESTOR EDUCATION IN THE DIGITAL AGE: WILL IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

SAVE THE DATE - BETTER FINANCE 2018 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE


  • DATE: 3 JULY 2018
  • TIME: 09H30 – 14H00 CET
  • LOCATION: THE HESSIAN STATE REPRESENTATION IN BRUSSELS

BACKGROUND: With fewer individual investors investing directly in equities and bonds and households being sold packaged products instead, the products EU citizens invest in are becoming increasingly complex. As a result people struggle to understand the financial products they are invested in.
Whereas new technologies and FinTech are, to some extent, cutting out the middle man and returning some control to retail investors, these new tools also require a certain degree of knowledge on the part of the end-user.
Investor Education is therefore a key success factor for the well-being of EU citizens as savers and investors. With this in mind, BETTER FINANCE has made Investor Education a priority for 2018. More specifically, BETTER FINANCE aims to take a closer look at Investor Education in a Digital World to identify best practices and clearly establish priorities in terms of investor education.

CONFERENCE: BETTER FINANCE will bring stakeholders, experts and practitioners involved in investor education together to discuss how to best equip investors with the necessary tools, rules and knowledge to deal with the complex and ever-evolving world of finance and the challenges and opportunities that FinTech represents in this respect.
Decision makers from the European Commission, from the European Parliament and from supervisory authorities at the European and national levels will also discuss policy implications and best practices.
