For its March Newsletter, DG FISMA (the European Commission's Directorate-General for Financial Stability, Financial Services, and Capital Markets Union) interviewed Alin Iacob, the new chairman of the Financial Services User Group (FSUG), and Board Member of BETTER FINANCE. Alin Iacob is also the chairman of the Association of Romanian Financial Users (AURSF).

In the interview, Mr. Iacob addresses the efforts of the FSUG pertaining to retail financial services and outlines his perspective on the key focus areas in the upcoming months.

"Our mission is to have European consumers at the forefront of Commission policies in the area of retail financial services. We should always remember that if there were no consumers, there would be no businesses. It is as simple as that. The FSUG’s work mainly focuses on the Commission’s ongoing and upcoming initiatives on retail financial services, while proactively identifying other relevant issues." says Mr. Iacob when asked about his main goals and concerns.
