At BETTER FINANCE, we closely monitor various Member States’ legal frameworks regarding the rights of individual investors and minority shareholders.

We firmly believe that among the most important rights of minority shareholders one has to include the right to organise collectively and the right to seek professional assistance. Such rights are often exercised through the collective holding of shares with an attorney or public notary, i.e. safekeeping of shares on a fiduciary securities account of an attorney or public notary.

Our attention has been brought to the fact that the Republic of Slovenia recently introduced the Market in Financial Instruments Act, which infringes on investors’ rights granted by the provisions of the Regulation (EU) No 909/2014 .
