Policy portal All policy portal

This policy portal provides a public interest perspective on the issues at stake and ongoing legislative debates in the field of financial regulation.

As major rules for financial institutions are set at the EU rather than national level, EU legislators play the key role. Adequate rules are of crucial importance, as the size, complexity and influence of the financial system have reached unprecedented levels. Challenges like digitalisation or accelerating climate change need to be addressed too. There is a long way to go to make finance truly serve the economy and society.
