Since 2012, BETTER FINANCE is also looking beyond individual share ownership and  investments to other financial services users such as savers; especially bank savers (35% of EU households’ financial assets are held in bank accounts), life insurance policy holders, pension fund participants, mortgage borrowers, foreign exchange users, credit card holders, etc. BETTER FINANCE brings its expertise of investment and financial matters into these retail issues and cooperates with other consumer and civil society organizations in this field.
